Recipe of the week: honey-lime fruit salad
Fruit salad has always been a staple side dish in my home. No matter the occasion, there was always some variation to the simple dish with a side of cream cheese or fruit dip. After moving out of my family’s home I decided to get creative and make my own variations of fruit salad, but I also wanted to keep it simple. So I turned to my favorite fruits, bananas and mangoes. One day scrolling through Facebook, I stumbled upon a salad recipe that called for honey-lime dressing and decided to add that to my fruit salad. The overall combination was to die for. The tartness of the lime juice balanced out the sweetness of the honey and the rest of the fruit. All of my cravings were satisfied in one bite.
