This Summer Fruit Salad is a real crowd pleaser. Cantaloupe, honey dew, watermelon, pineapple, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are drizzled with lightly sweetened orange lime juice.
Summer really brings such amazing flavor to the table. Nature really is incredible in her taste and bounty. I know our summers would not be complete without Summer Fruit Salad. This tasty treat is perfect for graduation parties, patio parties, neighborhood shindigs and pot lucks. It is as beautiful as it is tasty and can be assembled in short order (as my late mother used to say). The berry family is in full glory and flavor right now with the best of the best of the harvest coming in. The easy Summer Fruit Salad has a simple Orange Lime Drizzle that comes together in minutes.
If you don’t like pineapple replace it with strawberries. If we put strawberries in our fruit salad my son could not eat it because he is allergic to them. He has always been so disappointed about the fact that he can not eat them.
