Lime poppy fruit salad

I wanted to jazz up some fruit, so I went hunting for a simple dressing recipe. I made lots of adjustments, so I can’t even say I followed the recipe. I had some mango, kiwi, and grapes, but I would love to add some of the other fruits listed. My lime was being pretty stubborn, so I added some extra zest and I poured in some limeade that was in the fridge. It was really yummy, and it was a nice way to add a little extra something to fruit. Maybe later I’ll add a little cinnamon.
