Honey Lime Poppy Seed Fruit Salad is a blend of all your favorite fruits with a sweet and zesty dressing to make each fruit burst with flavor! Add color and flavor to your table with this light and refreshing side.
I love using poppy seeds in my recipes to add a little texture and flavor. Banana Poppy Seed Muffins with an Orange Glaze, this delicious Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole, or this yummy Almond Poppy Seed Bundt Cake are a few recipes that you have to try!
The fact that my favorite fruits are coming into season makes me so excited! This honey lime poppy seed fruit salad takes about 10 minutes to throw together so it’s simple and quick. Wiith all of the blackberries, strawberries, mangoes, and kiwis combined, it makes a gorgeous and bright salad. Once you combine all of the fruit together, you drizzle on a honey lime poppyseed glaze. It adds in a very complimenatry sweet yet tangy glaze that is irresistable.
The great thing about this fruit salad is that you can change it up and use any fruit that you would like. Depending on what fruit is in season (so that you can make this all year long) you can try out some grapes, bananas or pineapple. There is no way that you can’t make this salad and not have it be a hit wherever you take it. I devoured the entire bowl, and needless to say, it is fantastic!

These fruits combined with a delicious and easy glaze will make this a fruit salad that goes with you to every gathering and party. To find out all of the exact ingredient measurements, check out the recipec ard at the bottom of the post.
- Fruit: In this particular salad, I use sliced strawberries, yummy blackberries, fresh blueberries, diced kiwis and some sliced mangoes.
- Honey: This acts as the base of the dressing and keeps it nice and sweet.
- Lime Juice: This adds in a citrus component. It also breaks down the honey so that the dressing isn’t thick.
- Poppy Seeds: These add a delicious flavor and look to the dressing.
- Mint: I like to garnish the bowl with freshly chopped mint but this is optional.
How Do You Make Honey Lime Poppy Seed Fruit Salad?

How do you stop fruit salad from going brown?
A fruit salad like this honey lime poppy seed salad is only as good as its preparation! This salad won’t go brown with the fruit listed, but if you add any fruits like bananas, pears, and apples, you might have some browning. To prevent this, simply squeeze some lemon juice over them. You can use fresh or bottled lemon juice (which I usually have on hand). No need to measure a certain amount. Just squeeze a generous amount over the fruit and toss the fruit to coat.
Can I Make a Fruit Salad a Day Before?
Honey lim poppy seed fruit salad gets juicier the longer it sits. The basket of a salad spinner will let the extra liquid drain and help the fruit stay crisp when stored overnight. Toss some of the juice back into the salad just before serving for extra sweetness or save it and make vinaigrette the next day
