Summer Fruit Salad with Heavenly Citrus Dressing

Fruit is my favorite food group. I love late spring and summer because all of the produce is so lovely and ripe and in-season. There really isn’t anything more perfect than a long, beautiful hike, and all the fruit to accompany you on your hike.

I love most fruit. About the only one I can’t deal with is bananas. Ack. Banana bread? Ok. Banana cake? Ok. Bananas? NO! Noooooo thank you! Other than that I’m pretty chill. I love fruit salads, but I always leave out the bananas for obvious reasons. This fruit salad really does have some of the best fruit options in it 

Fruit salads are the epitome of summer and vacation to me. They’re so bright, so fresh, so refreshing. I generally like my fruit salads undressed, but the dressing in this recipe is awesome! It tastes GREAT!

Thanks to the folks at All Recipes for this delicious recipes!
