Well I'm not a fan of fruit salad in general I had neither a fresh orange nor tinned pineapple but I also was feeling like all I've been serving for dessert lately is a bowl of one type of fruit per evening. So I made this with a tin of mandarin oranges (forgetting my husband's childhood-bred aversion to them--oops) and fresh pineapple just squeezing juice out of the rinds into the dressing as I went and remembering some of these reviews jerking my hand back before the whole teaspoon of poppy seeds tumbled in. Oh also I had no kiwi but did toss in about 1/2 pint of fresh blueberries. And it was all terrific! Is it the poppy seeds that make it taste so special? Whatever. I'm thinking of making another to bring to a pool party next week. Katy you've converted me to a fruit salad fan! Well done! Read More

A fruit salad is only as good as its parts...I'm giving this recipe three stars because I was not terribly impressed with the results of using canned pineapple. I found it produced a somewhat bland watery sauce. That said I like the idea of the recipe and will DEFINITELY make it again using fresh pineapple instead. The combination of citrus and honey is a delicious enhancement to fresh fruit without being overbearing. I have no doubt that using ll fresh fruit will make this a five-star fruit salad. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I used two cans of mandarin oranges a can of pineapple two kiwis two small packages of blueberries and a package of strawberries and maybe a cup of grapes. Given how much fruit I used I figured I'd double the "dressing " but ended up with a little too much liquid. I think I could have left the liquids the same but still used the full teaspoon of poppy seeds and been just fine. Even though it was a little liquidy in the bottom everyone enjoyed it! Read More

A wonderful combination of fruits! You could also add a bit of sliced banana right before serving. The dressing was just the thing to tie it all together but I would use less poppy seeds next time. Terrific...thanks for sharing Katy! Read More

Good fruit salad Katy. I didn't have the strawberries so I added an extra orange. The lime dressing is really good. I'm not sure if you need as many poppy seeds as the recipe calls for. I just sprinkled what I thought was enough over the top. Will be a great summer salad! Read More

I made this for an Easter picnic and everyone loved it; one of my friends even asked for the recipe! I did use fresh pineapple instead of canned and I think I would put in less poppy seeds next time too. It was even better the next day. Read More

Very good. Don't use all the poppy seeds though. Unless you realllly love them. Just add a few and see how it is then adjust to how many you think looks/tastes right. Read More
