Poppyseed dressing and fresh fruit are a combination made in heaven; however, combining just the right mixture of ingredients into a fruit salad is harder than it seems. We’ve tried several fruit salads that had a poppy seed dressing but found that the combination of fruit wasn’t right or that the dressing was to sweet or even boasted too much of a citrus flavor. In this recipe, Carlsbad Cravings has gotten everything right. All of the right fruit is used, and all of it pairs together perfectly- there is not a single change we would recommend making. The poppy seed dressing is absolute perfection- the addition of honey was something other recipes had been missing.
If you are looking for a crisp, colorful, and just the right amount of sweetness, this fruit salad is one to try. It is perfect for the upcoming spring and summer months, and it would be a welcome addition to any barbecue or get-together.
Another wonderful thing about this recipe is that any leftover fruit can be used in another fruit salad. For ideas on other fruit dishes to make, check out the fruit recipes section on this blog.
