But any fresh fruit would work, especially now that so many fruits are in season. Nancy used mostly farmer's market finds in her fruit salad:
Recipe: Nancy's Poppyseed Dressing for fruit salad
3/4 cup corn oil
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup white vinegar (Nancy used lime juice)
1 tablespoon poppyseed
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add all ingredients to blender. Blend 20 seconds at medium speed. Pour into jar with a tight fitting lid. Refrigerate. Makes about 1-1/3 cup dressing.

Note: Nancy used about one-third of the above recipe to dress her fruit salad, which contained about 4 to 5 cups of diced fruit.
