Honey Lime Fruit Salad

My husband is home and I am back to having time to post and cook. This is a very simple yet very tasty salad. I made this for the Pioneer Day's family picnic. I was really worried that no one would like it but it was a pretty big hit. And have I mentioned it was very simple to make. The recipe called for candied nuts but my sister forgot to bring them but the salad was still good.

Honey Lime Fruit Salad
adapted from Nissen on PYP

1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup frozen (thawed) limeade concentrate
8 cups cut-up fresh fruit
1/2 cup candied walnuts

Mix honey, limeade concentrate, and poppy seeds in large bowl. Spread 3-5 tablespoons sugar evenly in a large skillet. Heat on medium until the sugar carmelizes. (This will take longer than you think so be patient!) Once sugar is a golden brown carmel stir in walnuts. Pour onto wax paper and cool. Once cooled, break into small pieces. Carefully toss fruit with honey mixture. Sprinkle with candied walnuts. Serve immediately.
