Fruit salad with oj honey dressing

WOOT YIPPEE YAHOOO and all that jazz! My son came home from being gone for 7 months. He joined the USAF and has been in basic and then tech school. He is home for a brief time before leaving us again for the next 2 years. So we celebrated with a big ol' family dinner.

Having a crowd to feed and two unexpected dinner guest I decided to add something to the meal, doing this helps stretch the food.

We started the meal with this refreshing fruit salad then moved on to  a lovely Angus beef roast with carrots, new potatoes, onions, fresh sauteed green beans, Hawaiian sweet rolls and ended with an eclair cake. Yes, I go all out.

Being it is summer and having lots of fresh fruit on hand. I whipped up this refreshing salad. FYI fruit should be eaten before the meal as it digest quicker and aids in digestion.

It was a big hit, even with the non-healthy-I want-meat-only eaters. :) If you are reading this you know who you are...AJ.
