A tongue-tingling lime dressing complements the colorful variety of fruit in this delightful salad. It's always a hit at summer get-togethers. It looks beautiful on a buffet and is very refreshing on a hot day.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2016

"I still have the print issue of this from the 90s. In that version they called for rinsed, canned mandarin oranges not nectarines. The combination of lime juice, water and sugar is amazing! I omit the watermelon personally. Everyone loves this and asks for it often when I am bringing a dish. Nobody ever guesses that the key to the flavor is lime juice. This is the only fruit salad recipe I ever use. But I have to say here in PA it is best made when all of the fruits are starting to actually come in season. And I use red or purple grapes. Green just don't do it for me."

"This was very tasty. Next time I will cut back on the lime juice a little. I took this to a party and everyone really enjoyed it! I will definitely be making this again!"

"Excellent recipe! I have had chef's ask me for this recipe because it is so delicious and the flavor is out of this world. Did I mention it is easy!"

"I felt the natural flavor of the fruit was masked by the lime. In the future I think I will look for a salad that has a sauce you can serve on the side."
