“This is my favorite fruit salad! I make it in the summer time when I walk through the market and smell the nectarines calling me. My family and freinds have enjoyed this salad on many occasions and I hope you enjoy it too! From the "Hay Day Country Market Cookbook".”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and prepare fruit. Place into a large bowl. I use a really large mosaic serving platter instead of a bowl and it makes a really nice presentation.
  2. Whisk the honey and lime juice together and pour on the fruit. Toss to combine. Refridgerate until ready to serve but not more than 2 hours. The fruit will become mushy if left to sit to long.
  3. Brown coconut with in a 300 degree oven or on the stovetop in a skillet. Watch carefully and stir periodically as it can burn easily. 5 - 10 minutes.
  4. Toss warm coconut with sugar and then the minced crystallized ginger and lime zest once cooled.
  5. Sprinkle fruit with the coconut topping when ready to serve.
