Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing
***see Cooks Notes below

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
2 cups diced peeled cantaloupe
2 cups diced peeled honeydew melon
2 cups seedless red or green grapes
2 cups diced peeled cored pineapple
1 1/2 cups diced peeled papaya
1 cup halved hulled strawberries

Whisk first 4 ingredients in small bowl to blend; set dressing aside. Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl. Cover dressing and fruit separately and chill until ready to serve, up to 6 hours.

Mix dressing into fruit. Let stand 15 minutes to blend flavors.

Makes 8 servings.

This recipe had 23 reviews and 95% of the people who posted a review would make it again. That's a pretty good percentage.

***Cook's Notes - Whatever yogurt you use STRAIN it first through cheesecloth in the fridge for a couple hours. The thickness helps the dish. Vanilla yogurt also works really well with this dish. More lime zest was also suggested - someused the zest from 2 limes.

You can substitute your favorite fresh fruit - if you'd rather have banana instead of papaya do so.
