1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup orange juice 
2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
5 cups cubed cantaloupe 
1 cup fresh blueberries ( I used frozen)
2 large firm bananas, sliced ( I didnt use)
2 medium peaches, peeled and sliced ( I used frozen)
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups halved seedless grapes

1.In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients; mix well. In a large bowl, combine the fruit. Add dressing and toss to coat. Serve immediately with a slotted spoon

 Yield: 12 servings.

* We all loved this fruit salad the dressing made all the flavor of the fruit really come out. It was light and refreshing and I will totally make this again many times I am sure.Make sure that you wait to put on the dressing until right before you are going to serve it. It went kinda mushy with the little leftover that we had. I give it a 4 1/2 on the scale.
