A delicious and bright fruit salad made with fresh fruit and a delicious honey lime poppyseed glaze to go on top! I love using poppy seeds in my recipes to add a little texture and flavor. Banana Poppy Seed Muffins with an Orange Glaze, The Very Best Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole or Almond Poppy Seed Bundt Cake are a few recipes that have just that touch.
Oh my goodness. Fruit. The fact that my favorite fruits are coming into season makes me so excited! I am like a kid in a candy store. I crave fruit all of the time. But this pregnancy I just can’t get enough of it.
Can we talk about this fruit salad for a minute? It takes about 10 minutes to throw together. I used all of my favorite fruits. Blackberries, strawberries, mangoes, and kiwis combined to make this gorgeous and bright salad. The honey lime poppyseed glaze over the fruit gave it a little bit of sweet and tangy. The poppyseed added a fun texture to the fruit and the end result was perfection.
The great thing about this fruit salad is that you can use any fruit that you would like. I would have loved to have added grapes, but they aren’t quite up to my standards yet. There is no way that you can’t make this salad and not have it be a hit wherever you take it! I devoured the entire bowl and needless to say, it is fantastic!

Any time you cut fruits like bananas, pears, and apples that you don’t want to turn brown, simply squeeze some lemon juice over them.
