Fruit Salad with Honey-Citrus Dressing

I was making s garlic-citrus flank steak for dinner along with a black bean salad and I decided to make a fresh fruit salad with a honey-citrus dressing to go with them. It was quick and easy to make and a great way to use up some fresh fruit that I had on hand. It was a light, refreshing, and delicious salad that paired perfectly with the rest of the meal.

Combine the orange zest, orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, and honey together in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined. Taste and add more honey if needed.

Combine the pineapple, mango, strawberries, green grapes, blueberries, and blackberries together in a large bowl. Drizzle the fruit salad with the honey citrus dressing, to taste, then toss to coat evenly. Serve and enjoy.

    I adore fruit salad, but I can’t ever make it: I eat the ingredients before they ever get into the bowl!

    What a pretty salad. We eat a lot of fruit. I made a similar fruit salad for our blogger get-together last weekend for breakfast the next day to be served with shrimp and grits. I wish I had seen yours with the lovely honey citrus dressing.
