Bright and summery red, white, and blue patriotic fruit salad & honey lime poppyseed dressing with quinoa and walnuts is full of amazing flavors and textures, the perfect side dish for any meal!
All of your fruit salad dreams are coming true right now. Whether you realized it or not previously to reading this is questionable, but it’s true. You’ve been dreaming of the perfect combination of fresh fruits coated in the silkiest, sweet dressing you could ever ask for. And it’s all coming together right here, right now, in this bowl of red white and blue fruit salad.
And while we are on the subject of red WHITE and blue things, can we talk about milk for just a second?
Because yesterday I realized that I have not one, two, or three cartons of milk in my fridge, I actually have FOUR. Four cartons of milk. I go through it that quickly in my house.
Now on the one hand, I’m thinking I might need to talk to someone about my milk-buying habits because they could be borderline out of control… but on the other (wiser) hand I’m thinking hey, if I’m going to be impulse buying something, MILK is definitely the something it ought to be. It’s a high-quality, wholesome protein source and goes in everything, on everything, with everything – case in point: this fruit salad. Milk is in that creamy honey lime poppyseed dressing and I’m recommending an 8-ounce glass of milk served right up alongside the fruit salad to wash down all of that berry-banana-apple-quinoa-walnut goodness.
