Recipe review

Anna Anna Y., second-year undergraduate, University of Kansas, Lawrence

This honey-lime fruit salad is perfect for a healthy, sweet snack at home or as a side dish to bring to an event. This recipe makes an ample amount for one person. My suggestion? Freeze any leftovers that you can’t finish and then you’ll have the perfect smoothie for another day!

CostRating: 5 out of 5 stars

I spent about $13.00 on the ingredients and it should last me several days. Plus, I plan to freeze some of it for smoothies. I think this is practical for students and cost-effective.

ConvenienceRating: 4 out of 5 stars

This recipe was simple to make and only required a good knife, a cutting board, a bowl, and some measuring spoons. The recipe does require lime zest, which is difficult to get without a zester or cheese grater, but if you have the patience to produce the zest with a knife…more props to you!

TasteRating: 5 out of 5 stars

I would absolutely make this fruit salad again. The lime juice gives it a subtle pizzazz and offsets the sweetness of the fruits. However, I don’t think the two teaspoons of lime zest were completely necessary. Next time I won’t add that. This is a great way to fill up on something sweet without overdoing it on dessert.
