This salad looks so refreshing for the hot summer days ahead! Looks perfect to bring to a BBQ and enjoy with family and friends!


Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad


  • 1 lb fresh strawberries , diced

  • 1 lb fresh pineapple , diced
  • 12 oz fresh blueberries
  • 12 oz red grapes , diced into halves
  • 4 kiwis , peeled and diced
  • 1 (15 oz) can mandarin oranges in juice, drained well and sliced into halves
  • 2 ripe bananas , diced*

Honey Lime Dressing

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp lime zest (zest of 2 medium limes)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice


  1. Add all fruit to a large mixing bowl. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together they honey, lime zest and lime juice. Pour over fruit just before serving and toss to evenly coat (as it sits for a few minutes the juices will gather at the bottom, so toss again before plating).
  2. *The bananas aren’t pictured. I decided to add them later on because I love the sweet flavor they add.
