Red, White & Blue Fruit Salad

red white blue fruit saladWhile summer is coming to a close, and many fruit seasons wind down, it’s nice to have a good juicy fruit salad. This salad has a wide range of flavor: watermelon and dragon fruit juiciness combined with blueberries and strawberries. The citrus-y dressing adds the sweetness of agave, with the delicious tartness of limes and oranges.

This recipe is great for a variety of summer holidays, picnics, potlucks, and cookouts. If you are making the fruit salad for guests or a gathering, keep the dressing separate from the fruit and add it just before serving. This will keep the fruit pieces crispy and help them hold their shapes.

If you don’t have a melon baller to make melon and dragon fruit balls, you can use a stainless steel measuring spoon the same way. I use a teaspoon or tablespoon, depending on how large I want the fruit balls.

Keep leftover fruit salad in the refrigerator and eat it within two or three days.
