Thyme honey lime vinaigrette dressing for Fruit Salad

Fruit salad final


The Honey thyme Vinaigrette is very complimentary to this salad. I love the diversity of flavors with the honey, lime juice, vinegar and thyme all mixed together with the fruit. The thyme gives an extra cool factor punch. For the very best flavor, be sure to serve this Fruit Salad with cold vinaigrette.

Pomegranate seeds  bring some crunch to this salad, while the pulpy sweetness of grapes is balanced by tangy and sweet taste of orange, pineapple -Tossed with a sweet, slightly tangy and herby  lime-Thyme Vinaigrette, this salad showcases the best flavors and colors that winter has to offer and gives summer salads a run for their money.
