Sure, the poolside-mojito dates are fun too, but really, this salad takes the cake.

And it serves many purposes.

  • It’s a healthy spin to dessert time, just in time for bikini season. So you can put down the chocolate cake. And the box of donuts.
  • You can use up all those lingering fruits in your fridge.
  • There’s just so many colors here, simply making this summertime magic.
  • But really. That poppy seed dressing. That’s the only reason why you should be making this. The ONLY reason.
