Friday recipe: Fruit salad

If you can't have fruit salad in the summer, when can you? Sure, come January it sounds delicious but those fruit prices are astronomical. I think I need to invest in a greenhouse or hydroponics or something.

This is a Tangy Poppy Seed Fruit Salad. I admit, I was skeptical at first--poppy seeds on a fruit salad? Are they good for you or just tasty? I still don't know but it was good!

Prep Time:      Cook Time:
15 Min              15 Min


  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks - drained with juice reserved
  • 1 orange, peeled and segmented
  • 1 kiwi -- peeled, halved and sliced
  • 1 cup seedless grapes
  • 1 cup quartered strawberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds


  1. In a large bowl, toss pineapple, orange, kiwi, grapes and strawberries. In a small cup or bowl, combine lime zest, lime juice, honey, poppy seeds and 1/4 cup reserved pineapple juice. Stir well and toss with fruit.
