Blue Ribbon Recipe

This refreshing fruit salad is summertime in a bowl. We adored everything about this recipe. The mixture of fruit is perfect. A bit tangy from the lemon and sweet from the honey, the dressing has the right balance of flavors. It's divine when mixed with the fruit. This is a delicious fruit salad for any gatherings this summer. The Test Kitchen
