We love this fruit salad!  I have made it three times in the last 5 days.  I used mangos instead of necatrines.  I am on a total mango frenzy these days.  Good thing you can buy 8-9 at Costco for $5.99.  This is a fruit salad that is so easy to prepare and a great addition to any summer meal.

Glad to hear you liked it! I too made it recently and it was delicious. The honey lime syrup really takes the perfect summer produce to a whole new level.

I'm glad you are back! I missed your updates. And we missed you at the reunion, but your mom and sisters did some pretty awesome cooking, too.
