One of the sweetest things about summer is the fruit: plump, ripe, juicy delectables that beg for bare fingers snatching just one more strawberry. The Cooking Classy site offers the following tips for creating the perfect fruit salad, along with a light topping recipe that won’t overpower the naturally sweet flavor of fruit.
1. Keep berries together and save the citrus for another day.
2. Use fresh, not frozen, fruit so it stays firm.Prep fruit ahead of time.
3. Mix it all just before eating or when company arrives
Try this honey-lime dressing for an extra kick:.
Mix 1/4 cup honey, 2 teaspoons of lime zest, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, then add evenly to the fruit salad. Better than whipped cream and healthier, too!
