Fruit Salad With Honey & Lime Zest Dressing

Fruit Salad with honey and lime zest dressing

This recipe for fruit salad is my kind of recipe.  Healthy, beautiful, simple & easy!

I invited a group of women over today and this fruit salad was on the menu.  These women are friends of mine, and we all had a wonderful experience together at a weekend retreat called Jumping Tandem Retreat.

I’m excited to share with you all what God has been doing in my heart since the retreat, but that is for another post.  Let’s just say that the theme for the retreat was “your big, amazing, ridiculous dream” & I have been dreaming ever since I got home!

I was too nervous to do much dreaming there, as I was one of the workshop leaders and public speaking is something I’m just getting used to doing, so my brain was preoccupied.

But, something I was not too busy to notice was the authenticity of each and every woman there and the beautiful connections being made.

It was a place where we could all just come, be who we are, be encouraged that we can be all that God made us to be, and lay down whatever was weighing on our hearts.

In one of the sessions we were encouraged to anonymously write down our prayer requests, and today this group of women and I ate together, then spent time in prayer over these precious prayer requests.

It was an honor to be in possession of them and to be trusted to lift them up to God.  There was much need in some of these stories, some have stayed on my heart all day and I will be taking them before God more than once, that is for sure!

Back to this lovely fruit salad…I wanted to keep things light but also knew our meeting time of 11:00 was a time that stomachs start growling.  I kept the food simple, here is the menu:

~Fruit Salad With Honey & Lime Zest Dressing
~Pretzels Chips & Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (Trader Joes)
~Tortilla Chips & Peach Salsa (Trader Joes)
~Wheat Thin Type Crackers & Fiesta Lime Chicken Salad (Trader Joes & Health Food Store Deli)
~Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds With Sea Salt (Trader Joes)
~Hot Coffee
~Hot Tea

I told the ladies they were welcome to bring a snack to share, or just show up…whatever was best for them.  I had a friend bring some scones which rounded out our menu quite beautifully!

Notice the only thing I had to make was the fruit salad & coffee, and that was SO easy.  The fruit salad was delicious.

The dressing adds a touch of something special, a tangy but sweet citrus flavor.  It also gives the fruit a great shine.

Our time of eating and prayer together was beautiful.  I’m so very blessed to have such great women in my life!
