Honey Lime Winter Fruit Salad

Honey Lime Winter Fruit Salad - recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Sweet oranges, pineapple chunks and kiwi slices are tossed with a simply honey lime poppyseed dressing to make this Honey Lime Winter Fruit Salad. This salad takes barely five minutes to prepare and it disappears almost that quickly. Just in case you haven't noticed, my family eats a lot of fruit. Simple fruits, baked fruits, fruit salads, chocolate dipped or blended into smoothies, we love it all. This time of year, the selection is limited, but there is always a heaping basket of oranges on the counter. I wanted a fruit salad centered around our favorite cutie oranges and this one was perfect.

We made this salad for the first time over two years ago and that sweet baby of mine was not yet three years old. It's hard to believe that he's turning FIVE in just a couple weeks. The long hair has been gone for a while and his chubby little hands and baby face are disappearing more and more every night. He looks so very different now, but I still love this picture.

COOK'S NOTE: Check out the Kitchen Tip post on How to Peel a Kiwi Using a Spoon. It takes just a moment to peel them this way and I love it.

  7. The cute little limes, the poppy seeds, the clementines, the whole salad is adorable, but I'm sorry, none of that holds a candle to your son!! And one question---where is the helmet? :)

    1. We don't wear fireman helmets at the table, Sue. I have to draw the line somewhere, right? I love that he loves it so much, but it was fun to actually see his face for a picture this time!
