    When we get together, we all bring a dish. I'm signed up for a fruit salad this year. Here's what I'm taking...

    Sparkling Layered Fruit Salad
    serves 8

    Layer in a large bowl 1 cup of each of the following fruits:
    blueberries
    sliced plums
    sliced red grapes or sliced & pitted cherries
    chopped cantaloupe or honeydew
    sliced strawberries
    sliced nectarines, peaches or mangoes
    small green grapes
    raspberries

    Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

    For the dressing:

    1/4 c. lime juice
    2 T. honey
    1 tsp grated lime peel
    1 c. lemon or lime flavored sparkling water, well chilled
    mint sprigs, optional

    Whisk together all ingredients EXCEPT sparkling water and mint sprigs.

    Just before serving, stir in sparkling water and pour over fruit.

    Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.

    I found this recipe for fruit salad in Bee Culture magazine, Feb 2008 issue.
