Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Mint Dressing

 I made a fresh fruit salad for the shelter yesterday.  I peeled and diced for hours.

 The shelter rarely sees fresh fruit.  When they do get some, it is in such bad shape that they often have to throw it out.

 I used pineapples, kiwis, blueberries, cantaloupes, mango, papayas, oranges and bananas.

The dressing is made with lime juice, fresh mint, orange juice and honey whisked together in a blender.

What patience you have! Yes, chopping that fruit would take hours and hours! Such a treat for them!
THAT looks delicious. But a lot of chopping, indeed. Good thing you don't have arthritis in your hands.
What a fantastic healthy treat for them!!!!!!!!!!

Mmmm. Out here people would bring in apples, cherries and whatever grew for the food bank which was very much appreciated.

Yummy, fruit salad must be such a treat for the guys, I am sure fruit usually means an apple.
All I can say is YUMMMMMMMM!!!

Jaz, you are helping to keep the people at the shelter healthy and I am sure that your delicious meals keep-up their spirits, too.

I'm going to the super market tomorrow and I'll buy lots of fruit and ice cream :-) I made it from canned fruit the other week but that's really not the same!

Have a great day!

You look out so well for these guys. They are lucky to have you!

I have some fresh mint from my farmshare (plus tons growing in pots in my front yard). Now I have something to do with it besides drying it for tea! Thank you!
