Though fresh fruit steals the show in this morning medley, the subtle honey sauce makes it an especially sweet treat. 'It takes just 10 minutes to assemble this easy salad, which tastes so good with brunch,' says Dorothy Dinnean of Harrison, Arkansas. TIP: Don't have those fruits on hand? Try blackberries, mangoes or peaches instead.

Excellent! I was so pleased with this. First of all, this fruit salad is simply beautiful. I used the bananas, blueberries and rasberries as the recipe called for, but swapped out the strawberries with mangoes and kiwi for additional flavor and color contrast. The honey in the dressing makes the fruit glossy - so pretty! As if the fruit wouldn't be delicious enough on its own, the outstanding combination of honey and lemon in the dressing was like icing on a cake. ( I omitted the poppy seeds) Simply delicious. I served it over "Buttermilk Pound Cake" and "Microwave Lemon Curd," both recipes also from this site. I can't imagine a better fruit salad or a prettier, more delicious topping for that cake!

Delicious - this makes a great light dessert that's very refreshing. I cut the recipe down to two servings for just me and my husband. It was the perfect after dinner treat. Read More

This is the way fruit salad should be served. With no yogurt or other distracting flavors. This recipe is perfectly light and flavorful. Myself and my guests all loved it and everyone wanted the recipe. I used 1 catalope, 1 little pkg of blueberries, half a lb. of green grapes sliced in half, 2 small bananas, 1 pint of strawberries halved. After slicing the bananas I coated them in lemon juice (to keep them from browning) in a small bowel mixed the honey and lemon jiuce as stated in the recipe and then poured over the fruit, mixed well and served about an hour later. It was so fresh and a perfect ending to our first real bbq in March. Will absolutly make this again! Next week in fact. Read More

This recipe was amazing! I added chopped pecans and didn't use any poppyseeds. I also adjusted some of the other ingredients. I didn't have many of the berries..and they are expensive, so I used strawberries, bananas, apples, and oranges. It was delicious and I will definitely be making it again! Read More

The dressing for this fruit salad is so light and refreshing! It lets the natural flavor of the fruit shine through while adding just a touch of sweetness and texture. I actually used strawberries, honeydew melon, grapes, and pineapple in place of the original fruit. I'd say any 7 cups or so of fruit would work beautifully. I'll be keeping this recipe. Read More

My husband and I usually enjoy fruit salads made with different types of melons. I saw this berry salad and made it. It was absolutely delicious. The honey topping is scrumptuous. We both loved it, there were no leftovers! Will definitely make again and again! Read More

Wow - Yum! I don't like bananas so I left those out, but I used fresh raspberries, fresh blueberries, fresh strawberries and a pkg. of thawed blackberries... maybe 3 c of each? I used maybe 10 TBSP of honey and 3 TBSP of reconstituted lemon juice... no poppy seeds as I was out ... It was SO GREAT! I scooped some of the berries in a dish with the sauce, and poured a little heavy cream over it all - my kids (5 yrs, 3 1/2 yrs and 2 yr old twins) all went beserk over this and threw big fits because I wouldn't let them eat the rest of the huge bowl it made, lol!
