Honey Lime Fruit Salad is an incredible tasting and refreshing fruit salad!
If you love honey and lime, you will LOVE a bowl of this Honey Lime Fruit Salad! What better way to either start the day, enjoy the day, or FINISH the day with a bowl of fresh, ripe fruit, bursting with flavour.
Yet another one of those recipes I hesitated to share because of its simplicity, BUT, I know some of you will love and appreciate a new way to eat your fruits. This fruit salad recipe has been in our family for more than I can remember. In fact, we just drizzle on honey, squeeze over lime, and never measure anything because, well, we just have this ‘knowing’ of how much to put in. It’s such a common recipe, there are a gazillion Honey Lime Fruit Salad recipes on the internet, in recipe books, magazines, and anywhere else you look.
There’s one little addition we add to it to give it amazing flavour. Pineapple juice in the dressing makes a difference! The honey is GREAT if you have some fruit on the sour side. The lime juice gives it a bit of a beautiful, tangy kick. However, adding pineapple juice gives it a hint of sweetness, and can’t put your fork (or spoon) down type of situation.
If you’ve never tried a Honey Lime Fruit Salad with the addition of a tropical pineapple, do yourselves a favour and PLEASE go run into your kitchens!
Try it with this Coconut Whipped Cream, or this 3-Ingredient Double Chocolate Mousse!
Some Honey Lime Fruit Salad Tips:
- We leave out bananas in our fruit salads because of the empowering banana flavour being absorbed by the other fruit. You can add banana if you wish! I recommend adding it just before serving.
- You can substitute pineapple juice for orange juice or apple juice.
- Use any fruits you like! Add in blackberries, pomegranates, pear, apple, orange slices, mandarin slices, peaches, apricots, the choices are endless.

Can I use frozen fruits instead of fresh? Either way am going to make it, thanks
This recipe was incredible! I used white peaches, red grapes, honey crisp apples, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. I also added some fresh julienne mint; It was a total game changer!!! I can’t wait to make this again!!

Made this for my grandchildren as I have them every Thursday for dinner, and they wanted something
different. Can we all say YUMMY and will be making this again! Thanks for the recipe!
I’m taking this to a quilt guild meeting tonight. It’s so hot in Utah right now, the ladies will love it.
Two weeks ago, we entertained with a very special dinner. I made this Honey Lime Fruit Salad for dessert. I made it earlier in the day so that it would have time to marry with the honey-lime-pineapple syrup and yet not get mushy. I made it exactly as posted. I literally saw some guests’ eyes “pop” at their first bites. Then I listened to them “singing” with mmmm’s as they ate. One guest kept asking how I made it until I printed the recipe for her. She was all smiles. Now, you can tell that it makes a lot. I put the extra pineapple in a container for later. I poured a lot of the juice into our morning juice . For a few days afterward, we put the fruit into our oatmeal and had it for evening dessert. We did not tire of it. In fact, I need to make more!
OH WOW!! That is awesome to hear! I am so glad that it turned out and you enjoyed it all!! Thank you so much for sharing and following along with me! XO
Great to know it can be made ahead, thank you.
Wow, this looks amazing, and exactly what I need, because my apartment is too hot in the summerheat. Can this be made the day before? I have a roommate I get up before, so I have to be quiet in the morning. Looks forward to trying this.

Can you make this the day before? Would it get mushy?

This is a wonderful fruit salad recipe. I left out mangoes and added blackberries – because that’s what I had on hand. We thought the dressing was perfect – not too sweet but pulled all the ingredients together very nicely. Thank you!

I could dig in to this salad right now, Karina! Just beautiful – looks so juicy & flavorful!
Try adding poppy seeds (about 1 Tlb) It makes the fruit really beautiful and and adds a bit of Tea Room elegance. It’s the “tie” that goes with the suit, or the jewelry that finishes the perfect outfit. I promise you will love it! I shall try the pineapple – you all try the poppy seeds.
