Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

I am always looking for new fun ways to involve my kids more in the kitchen. Teaching them where food comes from, the importance of healthy fruits and vegetables, and the joy of cooking for others. Recently we were in desperate need of adding some extra Vitamin-C back into our diets, so we decided to put together a fruit salad combined with all of the beautifully sweet fruits we love. My children are not quite old enough to use knives, which is why we turned this basic fruit salad into a cute Valentine’s Day treat. Using a variety of heart shaped cookie cutters for the melons and pineapple. We cannot wait to make this healthy fruit salad for our friends and family this Valentine’s Day.

  • 2 Cara Cara Oranges
  • 2 Blood Oranges
  • 1 Dragon Fruit, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1 cup chopped cantaloupe
  • 1 cup chopped honeydew
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1/2 pomegranate, seeds removed
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 sprigs of mint
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey and a pinch of sea salt. Set aside.
  2. Begin peeling and chopping the fruit into bite size pieces. For the melons, dragon fruit, and pineapple, remove the peel, and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut up the fruit. Using a large serving bowl, place all chopped fruit into the bowl. Pour the dressing over the fruit, gently combine. Crumble feta cheese over top and sprinkle with fresh mint leaves. Taste, add more dressing if you like, or leave out the feta cheese. Serve immediately.
