Honey-Lime-Fruit-Salad

Preparing Instructions:

  1. Squeeze 1/4 cup (50 mL) juice from limes. In a small bowl, whisk juice with honey, tequila, mustard and salt. Place fruit in a large bowl. Pour in dressing and stir until coated. To develop flavors, let sit at room temperature, stirring occasionally, for at least an hour or up to 3 hours. Or cover and refrigerate for up to half a day.
  2. Fruit tip: Sturdy fruit such as pineapple chunks, mango or peach slices and firm strawberries hold very well for hours and are a good choice for the base of this salad. If using soft fruit such as melons, bananas, raspberries or blueberries, add them just before serving.
