Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

This was made for a dear friend who lost her son quite unexpectedly.  If you are from the South, you know people make food for such an occasion.  Often family will be coming into town, or friends dropping by and this is one dish you don't have to worry about being left at room temperature for more than an hour.  It's also great for ANY occasion, it's bright, colorful and full of flavor!   This was more than likely inspired from Cooking Classy.
