How To Make Honey Lime Berry Fruit Salad

Blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, crisp apples, fresh mint, and honey make up the most delightful fruit salad ever.

This is a fantastic substitute for our Tomato Mozzarella Salad that includes more berries and a sprinkling of honey-lime dressing for a fresh flavor. Similar to the original recipe, it works well as a Steak Salad for summer picnics, barbecues, or a straightforward family meal.

With in-season berries including strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries, this Berry Fruit Salad makes the most of the amazing Summer food.

You’ll want to drizzle this recipe’s dressing over your other favorite salads as well since it’s so good. The fresh mint leaves, lime juice, lime zest, and a few teaspoons of honey just need to be whisked together. After that, sprinkle it over the fruit’s top and combine everything. The meal has the ideal amount of sweetness from the honey and fresh fruit, which is wonderfully counterbalanced by the sharp lime and apple flavors.

Simply putting the ingredients together will make this simple fruit salad come together in no time. Then all you have to do is wait a few minutes for the flavors to soak in and meld together creating a lovely symphony.


The berries in this dish shouldn’t go bad as long as they are stored correctly. The apples, however, will quickly begin to oxidize and become brown. Despite the unappealing appearance, they will nonetheless taste excellent. Fortunately, there are various techniques for reducing browning.

Since the apples’ citric acid mixes with the lime juice in the glaze to halt the browning process, adding fresh lime juice to the glaze should be beneficial. The apple chunks can be prepared in lemon juice before being added to the salad bowl if you wish to be extra cautious.

Start by slicing the apples into bite-sized pieces. Then submerge the apple pieces in a water and lemon juice mix. Mix in 1 tablespoon lemon juice for every 1 cup of water. After soaking the apples in the separate bowl for 3-5 minutes, you can drain the water and toss them in with the salad recipe.

  • Add-ins: You may try a variety of crunchy add-ins, such as poppy seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, or pecans.
  • Fruits: Try substituting raspberries, seedless grapes, cherries, sliced bananas, orange wedges, or kiwi for the other fruits in the recipe.
  • Citrus glaze:There are many different ways you may modify the glaze recipe for this salad. First, depending on your preference, you can use lemon instead of lime. Orange juice might also be whisked in for a tart flavor that goes well with the remainder of the glaze.
