Ingredients:

  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 1 mango, peeled & cubed
  • 1 pineapple, peeled & cubed
  • 2 kiwis, peeled & sliced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish

Directions:

  1. Wash and prepare all of the fruit, slicing and cubing as needed.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice and honey until well combined.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add all of the fruit and pour the honey lime dressing over the top. Gently toss until all of the fruit is coated.
  4. Transfer the fruit salad to a serving bowl and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
  5. Chill the fruit salad in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

When it comes to pairing wine with fruit salad, it’s important to choose a wine that complements the sweetness of the fruit without overpowering it. For this Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad, a crisp and refreshing white wine would be a great choice.

A Sauvignon Blanc would pair well with this fruit salad, as its bright acidity and citrus notes would complement the tartness of the fruit and the acidity of the honey lime dressing. Look for a Sauvignon Blanc from Belledor Vineyards, Di Stasio, or Rombauer, as these wines tend to have higher acidity and more pronounced fruit flavors.

Another option would be a Riesling or Pinot Grigio, which are known for their sweet and fruity flavors. A slightly off-dry Riesling with a touch of residual sugar would balance the sweetness of the fruit and the honey in the dressing, while also offering refreshing acidity to cleanse the palate.

In summary, this Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad recipe is the perfect addition to any summer meal or gathering. The combination of fresh berries, tropical fruit, and a sweet honey lime dressing creates a burst of flavor and color that is both healthy and delicious. To pair with this salad, a crisp and refreshing white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling would be a great choice, as they have the acidity and fruit flavors to complement the sweetness of the fruit. Whether enjoyed as a snack, side dish, or dessert, this fruit salad is sure to be a hit with everyone who tries it.
