Summertime means salads to me.
I'm enamored with the fresh seasonal ingredients at the height of their nutrients and flavor. I especially enjoy sampling new salads at summertime get-togethers and BBQs, and oft times simple wins big.
So here's my version of simple. A medley of fresh vibrant fruits tossed in lightly sweetened juices with the perfect hint of vanilla.
My P-Man saw me preparing this and didn't look too interested. He went back for seconds and then thirds. I felt smug.
And of course you can use whatever fruits you desire. Follow your heart is all that I ask.
Fruit Salad with Vanilla Honey Citrus Dressing
Recipe by Bliss From Scratch | Printable Version
Prepare your fruits; ball, slice, pick, rinse, peel, etc. and place in a large serving bowl.
In a small bowl drain the juice from the can of pineapple. Add the vanilla, honey and orange juice. Whisk until combined and pour over the fruit.
Serve immediately or chill for a few hours before serving to allow the juices to meld into the fruit.
Serves 6-8. Enjoy.
