Let's go outside

A marvelous cold fruit salad that's geared toward adult entertaining and is a wonderful side dish to outdoor outings.

Fruit Salad for Picnics
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 2 pears or apples, cored and sliced
  • 2 peaches, pitted, sliced
  • 3/4 cup sweet cherries, pitted
  • 1 cup cubed cantaloupe
Process the first 5 ingredients in a blender until the dressing is smooth. Pour into a jar or sealed container. Chill until ready to pack cooler.
Place fruit in a sealed container, chill.
Place both items on ice in a cooler for picnicking.
When ready to serve, spoon dressing over fruit, toss and serve immediately.
Goes great with assorted cheeses, French baguettes and a spicy sweet, dessert wine.
