Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Poppy Seed Dressing

A little sunshine as summer approaches.
Warms the soul and excites you for the coming Summer season.

This one is so yummy; tangy, sweet and a little different with a crunch of poppy seeds.  I cheated and bought the pre-done mango at Costco because it is SO easy.

Do it with whatever fruit you have... raspberries and blackberries would be terrific, and oranges too.  Make it your own.

Serves 6-8

1/4 cup  honey
2 limes, juiced
2 Tbsp poppy seeds

1-2 cups mango, chopped
2 lb; strawberry, hulled and quartered
4-5 kiwi, peeled, quartered and chopped
1 cup blueberries or blackberries
1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped

Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.

Prep the fruit and add to a large bowl.  Leave layered and don't mix until you are ready to serve. Chill. When ready, toss together and serve.

Just lots of peeling, dicing and slicing going on, so I make sure to compost all this.  I'm not the "green" composting gal, so I just add it our yard waste (which is OK in Seattle).

Here's what I've been making:

One year ago: Watermelon Margarita
Two years ago: Arugula Salad with Watermelon & Feta
Three years ago:  Baked Greek Chicken with Tomatoes and Feta
Four years ago: Hazelnut Cake
