Blackberry-Lime Fruit Salad with tons of fresh fruit in a white bowl.

Hey everyone! Chelsea back from Chelsea’s Messy Apron and I’m excited to share with you all my favorite fruit salad! It’s chock full of delicious fruits and has a sweet + tangy dressing.

This salad has my ultimate favorite line-up of fruits in a salad, but know that the fruit can be easily changed out and swapped for whatever you like best. As long as the quantities remain pretty consistent and you’ve got plenty of variation, this salad will be a hit!

    The flavors were ok but the dressing never thickened and was WAY too much for the amount of fruit. Decent idea but needs some big changes to be better than decent. Probably would not make again.
