Fruit salad with honey-lemon dressing

The “recipe” (if it can be called a recipe because it’s relatively simple) I bring you today is perfect for summer. Now that bbq season is here; you’ll need a fresh and delicious dessert that it’s not too heavy after all that meat (or whatever you want to grill).

The honey-lemon dressing added a sweet and tangy touch to all that fresh fruit. And what about the watermelon bowl? Isn’t it a super cute serving idea???

This salad was a definite hit in our last bbq. We served it with homemade lemon frozen yogurt (recipe coming soon!), and they were both a match made in heaven: fresh, cool and tangy… Everybody had seconds (I even had thirds!!).

So guys, pick the freshest fruit you can get your hands on: ripe, sweet fruit makes a difference and takes this salad over the top. Make this for your next summer party; everyone will love it!!!


  • Half a watermelon
  • Half a Chinese melon (or honeydew)
  • 3 kiwi fruits
  • 1 cup cherries
  • You may use the fruit of your choice; the honey-lemon dressing goes perfectly with everything.

For the dressing:

  1. 90 ml. lemon juice
  2. 2-3 tbsp. honey
  3. 2 tbsp. limoncello (if you’re serving this to children, sub more lemon juice)
  4. For the dressing, toss all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir until honey is dissolved.
  5. Scoop the flesh out the watermelon and melon. Peel and chop kiwifruits and pit your cherries if desired. Fill the watermelon bowl with diced fruit and drizzle the honey-lemon dressing on top.
  6. That was all; I hope you give the honey-lemon dressing ago; when you try it, you won’t be able to stop adding it to everything. It is also perfect for greek yogurt, pancakes, waffles, savory salads, etc.…
