I’m so excited to share this delicious fruit salad & honey citrus dressing recipe as part of a shop that has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SummerSoStrong #CollectiveBias Mmmmmm! Who doesn’t love a tasty fruit salad?! It’s a BIG crowd favorite at our house – especially during the spring and summer months as those temperatures really start heating up! Often times, this is our go-to summer dessert. And, the fruit is SO pretty that it works GREAT as a dish to serve for backyard BBQs, pool parties, or pot lucks when we’re hanging out with friends/family! We actually do A LOT of pool parties and backyard dinners during the summer and that means that I am NOT want to deal with a bunch of breakable plates outside. So, I skip the dishes by using Dixie Ultra® for our events! After all, I’d much rather spend time hanging out (or putting my feet up after the party) than hanging out with my kitchen sponge!
But, you know a big plate of summertime food can be HEAVY! Even just a plate with this pretty fruit salad is NOT going to cut it on a regular paper plate , especially if you want to be walking around the party at all! But the Dixie plates are perfect for the job! Th Soak Proof Shield™ can stand up to the heaviest, messiest foods you can dish out – like this fruit salad. So, your guests can enjoy sturdy plates with no mess (even while wearing white) and you can enjoy NOT doing the dishes!! It’s a big win-win! You can see below that with the Dixie plates, we can even managed the one-handed carry around the pool with NO issues! Easy entertaining is about the ONLY way that I do get-togethers. So, it’s nice to have a sturdy product that you can depend on to make things easier! And how about that fruit salad?! It looks SO good doesn’t it?! Again, it’s a summer staple at our house! Though we do love just plain fruit salad, sometimes we like to spruce it up a bit with a honey citrus dressing just to give the fruit flavors some extra pizazz. You can vary the fruit up for the recipe however you’d like. Really, the recipe below is just a rough guide! 😉
