Chia Honey Lime Fruit Salad Recipe
Think you don’t need a recipe for a fruit salad? This Chia Honey Lime Fruit Salad really changes the game! When most people make a fresh fruit salad they just cut and mix up some fruit. But trust us, adding in a few simple ingredients really highlights the fruit and takes this crowd-pleasing fruit salad from just ok to SO DELICIOUS! What’s even more perfect is that you can switch up the fruit based on the season and serve this all-year-round.
How to Make Honey Lime Salad Dressing
The name of the game for this dressing is EASY! Just mix up all of the ingredients in a bowl and add to your cut up fruit.
Here are the ingredients:
What other fruit can be added?
Most fruit would work well in this salad! You can change it out for whatever is in season or what is available for you. However, leave out banana as it gets brown very quickly and can turn mushy.
Serving size depends on the setting, in my opinion. This serving is perfect for a dinner party of 2-4 people. For a small gathering/party, I will double or even triple this recipe.

This Tequila Lime Shrimp recipe is one of those dishes that can be whipped up pretty quickly when you don’t have much else on hand. If you are like me, you’ll likely have some frozen shrimp hanging out in your freezer that can be defrosted quickly and the whole thing cooked up from start to finish in about 20 minutes. Serve with your favorite side dish, over a bed of greens or as tacos!
Here’s what you need:
butter or oil
3 garlic cloves
1 small yellow onion
1 lb. raw shrimp, peeled and deveined, about 15-20 shrimp
salt and pepper
handful of fresh cilantro
How can you defrost frozen shrimp quickly?
Place the frozen shrimp in a bowl with cold water for about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under water for a minute and the shrimp will be ready to go!
What can I serve this with?
Tequila lime shrimp is versatile and you can serve it with so many different sides:
This 3-ingredient cabbage slaw for tacos is the easiest addition to a quick and delicious taco night. Made in minutes with cabbage, mayo (or Greek yogurt) and lime, it adds a nice creamy acidity to your favorite taco (or non-taco) dish. Serve with chicken, fish, or carnitas (or really anything) and you’ll be happy you did!
It literally takes less than 10 minutes, and can be made ahead of time up to 6 hours. The hardest part is slicing the cabbage, and that isn’t very hard! Toss with the remaining 2 ingredients and you’re good to add a nice punch of creaminess and acidity to any taco dish!
Ideally you make it at least an hour before serving, as it sits it will break down the cabbage. Can be made up to 6 hours ahead of time, kept in the refrigerator.
Don't need 6 servings? Halve the recipe and only use half a head of cabbage with a scant 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tablespoon lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
