Honey Lime Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is colorful, easy, and delicious! What more could one ask for? And you can substitute a variety of fresh fruits, depending on what you prefer and what is in season. The recipe is slightly adapted from Mel's Kitchen Cafe.

1 (20­-ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained well, or about 1 1/2 to 2 cups chopped fresh
pineapple
1 (15-­ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained well
1 cup blueberries
1 cup green grapes, halved
1 cup strawberries, quartered
Zest from one lime, about 1/2 tablespoon
1 to 2 tablespoons honey
1/2 to 1 teaspoon poppy seeds (optional)

Combine the fruit in a serving bowl. Add the lime zest and toss. Drizzle the honey over the fruit and gently mix until the fruit is evenly coated. Sprinkle the poppy seeds on top and toss to combine. Serve immediately or within an hour because some fruits may bleed and color the rest of the salad, making it less visually appealing, though it won't affect the taste. Serves 6.
