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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
