Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad

Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad

It might seem like the summer weather is far away when you take into consideration all of the rain that we have been having here in New York City lately.  Maybe it is my wishful thinking longing for some sun and fun outdoors but I am really looking forward to cookouts and family get-togethers this summer.

Since my brother and father work in the produce business, I always have access to fresh fruits during the spring and summer.  There is nothing better than enjoying fruit salad with your loved ones when the weather is warm.  Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad is one of our favorite recipes because, not only is it incredibly easy to make, but it is delicious too!

It’s also an extremely versatile recipe because you can substitute any of the fruits for those that you prefer or that are more pleasing to your palate.  Not to mention any that you need to exclude due to any existing food allergies that you may have.  So have fun with it and serve it at your next outdoor event this summer!  Your family is sure to love Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad as much as mine does!
