How to make simple fruit salad

Step 1: Prepare the fruit. Slice or halve the strawberries depending on the size. Cut the grapes in half and chop one fresh pineapple into chunks.

Place the strawberries, blueberries, grapes, and pineapple in a large bowl.

Step 2: Mix together the dressing. Stir together the zest of one lime, plus the lime juice and honey.

Step 3: Pour the dressing onto the fruit salad and stir gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours, or until ready to serve. Stir again right before serving.

Many similar recipes call for sugar, but this fruit salad is made without sugar and is instead sweetened with honey.

Fruit itself is nature’s candy, so a touch of honey is all you need!

I used pineapple, strawberries, blueberries and grapes for my fruit salad recipe, but you have so many choices here!

Use whatever fresh fruit you have on hand.

We have really enjoyed having ready made fruit salad in the fridge to grab for a quick and healthy snack.

This recipe also makes a huge amount, so you’ll have leftovers for days.

The honey lime dressing is my favorite part. It really marries all of the fruit flavors together and adds a tangy sweet twist!

Be sure not to skip out on the lime zest, it really adds a lot of flavor!

How long can you keep fresh fruit salad in the fridge?

Once you are finished making the fruit salad, transfer it to an airtight container and store in the fridge.

For best freshness, enjoy within 3-4 days, if it lasts that long!

If you’re making this for a party, I recommend making it ahead of time and letting it chill in the fridge for at least an hour to let the fruit get cold and the dressing to marinate.

That will give it time for all of the delicious flavors to blend together!

Tip for serving this recipe

Be sure to stir your fruit salad each time that you get it out of the fridge.

This will ensure that the dressing is evenly distributed on all of that yummy fruit!
