Happy Memorial Day! A Perfect Fruit Salad for your Picnic

Here's a refreshing fruit salad idea that's sure to be a hit at any Memorial Day picnic . . .

1 large seedless watermelon
1 quart of strawberries
1 fresh pineapple
1 (15 oz) cans mandarin oranges
2 kiwis
l cantaloupe
1 honey dew melon
4 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Remove watermelon from rind.  Keep rind intact so it can be used as a bowl for the fruit.  (That's why a large watermelon is best.  Slice lengthwise and save lower portion for bowl.)  Slice all fruits into large bite size chunks.  Mix and place into melon shell.  Lightly squeeze lime juice over the top of the fruit, and then squeeze the honey over the fruit

This recipe is so cool and refreshing for hot summer days.  It really doesn't take too long to slice up the melons and other fruit.  Feel free to replace the mandarin oranges with fresh oranges or tangerines.

Serve cold.
