Honey Fruit Salad

by Dinner Hero on February 4, 2013

This salad is very easy to make.  You can even change up the recipe by changing the fruits to whatever you have, or whatever you like.

I keep the dressing separate from the fruit, because my boy is anti-poppy seeds.  Hmmmm?  I’m not sure they even have a taste.  Whatever.  He will eat a huge bowl of this fruit as long as I can remember to leave the dressing off of his.

What I think makes this salad unique is the avocado.  I {heart} avocados.  It’s a surprising addition to fruit salad.
