I love apples. I can eat a lot of them. I have been happy to have them in my local box every week, even through the coldest bits of winter. BUT- sometimes its nice to have a larger fruit selection before the local growing season starts, and you can do just that with a combo box or bag.

This is a great way to enjoy fruit in a nutritious fruit salad. I like to make it into a parfait with fruit and granola and enjoy it as breakfast or dessert.

Tropical Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Glaze
2 cups of diced bananas, kiwi, and oranges
½ Cup plain yogurt
2 Tablespoon honey
juice of ½ a lime

Granola
1. Whisk together honey and lime juice in a small dish. If you use raw honey like I do, you may need to heat the honey in a saucepan on low until just pourable.

2. Dice fruit and mix with the glaze in a medium bowl. Refrigerate for half an hour but not much longer, as your fruit will get soggy and mealy, and the honey can harden.

3. In a tall glass, assemble your parfait. Put 1/3 of your fruit salad mix, 1/3 of your yogurt, and a sprinkling of granola. Repeat twice.

If you are trying to avoid refined sugar like I am, you can find honey- sweetened granola for the parfait. Enjoy!
