1/4 cup good quality honey
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 carton blackberries
2 carton raspberries
4 braeburn (or other red variety) apples, sliced thin
Simply whisk together equal parts of honey and freshly squeezed lime juice in a bowl. (The amounts of each can be adjusted to accommodate any size fruit salad, but 1/4 cup of each was perfect for this amount of fruit.) Pour the syrup over the fruit salad, and gently toss to combine. Top with fresh lime zest.
Optional Boozy Fruit Salad:
Add an equal amount of prosecco, rose, or champagne, to the honey & lime syrup.
Even though I made this for normal, daily snacking for this week, my favorite part about this fruit salad is that it would make an incredible boozy brunch salad. But for all normal purposes, adding the honey lime syrup makes everything even more flavorful, fresh, indulgent, and it keeps getting better with each day. Honey and lime are the perfect compliment to this combination of tart and sweet, winter into spring, fruits, and I am excited to try different combinations with each season (vanilla and pears this fall, anyone?)!
