I am obsessed with fresh fruit. Our fridge is always full of fresh ready to eat fruit. I would honestly eat fruit over candy and chocolate any day. I am loving all of the fresh fruit at our local market right now and it is perfect for making a fruit salad.

One of my favorite salads on the blog is this Honey Lime Poppyseed Fruit Salad. The honey lime glaze add the perfect flavor to the fruit. I decided to make this salad but add some quinoa. Quinoa not only adds a yummy texture to this salad, but has so many health benefits and added protein.

My friend Jason from The Modern Dad came over for a visit and it was the perfect opportunity to put together this delicious salad with all of the fresh fruit in my fridge. Jason is honestly the funniest person that I know and I laugh the entire time. He has such a fun blog too! By the end of making this salad our mouths were watering and we couldn’t wait to eat it!

  1. I love fresh fruit and was so excited when I saw that you put it into a quinoa salad! I also love the ease of this recipe and definitely think it’d keep well if taken to work or school. I included it in my latest post, “Kick Start The New Year #3: 15 Healthy Lunches”!

  2. I don’t mind eating this every day while doing work! But I’d removed quinoa though. Not a big fan of quinoa. I tried to like it but apparently it’s still not my thing. Great recipe! Really a healthy one 🙂

    1. Quinoa is a grain, most grocery stores carry it. Look for it either in the bulk section or with the dried beans and rice. “Generally, the seeds are cooked the same way as rice and can be used in a wide range of dishes. The leaves, meanwhile, are sometimes eaten as a leaf vegetable, much like amaranth, but commercial availability of quinoa greens is limited.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quinoa The grain has a bit of a nutty flavor and texture.
