Anyway, I made this salad for a family get-together yesterday; my grandparents were in town. The tartness of the strawberries is tamed by the super-sweet pineapple, as well as the honey in the dressing, and the lime accents the bright flavors. Banana tames the intensity just enough.
Pineapple-Strawberry-Banana Salad with Lime-poppyseed dressing
2 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
8 drops lime essential oil, or 1 Tbsp. finely shredded lime zest
1 Tbsp. lime or lemon juice (I used one lime ice cube)
Whisk together and set aside.
1fresh pineapple, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 lb. strawberries, sliced
Put in a large bowl, pour dressing over; stir and fold gently to coat. Other fruits to use, either in addition to the bananas or instead of them, could include apples, pears, or mango.
