Orange honey rainbow fruit salad recipe is like a party for your senses. The orange honey dressing includes a secret ingredient that brings this salad to life.
Nothing completes a spring/summer meal like a fabulous fruit salad. I can remember growing up, every summer party had a big ole bowl of fruit salad on the table.
Picnics, park parties, barbeques, cookouts, and pot lucks: burger, dogs, salads and fruit really make the perfect menu.
How To Make Orange Honey Rainbow Fruit Salad
Our fruit salads are always spectacular. You have to start with a rainbow to fruit. Start with all my favorite berries; strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry.
Then add kiwi, mandarin oranges, cantaloupe… You really can change it out to add your favorites.
The magic of this fruit salad is the dressing. I combined the juice of several Mandarin oranges, good honey, lemon juice and a special ingredient: fresh mint (in a mason jar).
I sealed it up and then shook the living tar out of the jar, which helps bruise the mint and release all of its loveliness into the dressing.
Shortly before serving, drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. OH.MY.GOSH! The combination of flavors is utterly spectacular.
The sweet, tart, and coolness from the mint really drive this salad over the top. This orange honey rainbow fruit salad is like a party for your senses.
It is the perfect fruit salad to take with you too. Simply layer it in a bowl with the firmest fruit at the bottom and work your way up. Carry your dressing separately.
When you are ready to serve, drizzle the dressing over top and toss to coat. Happy summer and enjoy!
