This vegan Creamy Fruit Salad with Key Lime Dressing is a family favorite – the secret is in the dressing and the crispy graham cracker crumble topping!
I can’t believe it’s the end of August already! What the heck happened to summer? I keep seeing pumpkin spice recipes and Halloween ads everywhere, and kids are getting ready to go back to school. So many families have already finished their shopping for school supplies and are preparing to transition from sunny days at the beach to busy school days.
I am hoping this Fruit Salad with Key Lime Dressing recipe will make the transition easier for busy families! Kids are sure to LOVE this salad: it is made from some of my favorite fruits – pineapple, cantaloupe, and strawberries – and has a deeeelicious dressing made from So Delicious Dairy Free® Key Lime yogurt alternative. I added some freshly chopped mint for the extra fresh flavor, because we all know that mint + lime is a great flavor combination, right? 😉 I topped the salad with crumbled graham crackers to give it some crunch on top of all the fruit.
The salad is great as part of breakfast or part of a packed lunch, and it is also a great after-school snack. If you’re going to pack this fruit salad for a school lunch, I would recommend packing the graham crackers separately in a snack baggie and having your kids crush it up right before eating – this way it is extra crunchy and they get to have a little fun with their lunch.
So Delicious Dairy Free® yogurt alternatives are made from coconut milk and are a great option for kids (and adults!) who don’t eat dairy but still want all the probiotic goodness and yumminess of yogurt. Two out of the ten flavors have less than 1 g of sugar per serving and each of the ten flavors are Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten-Free, and Certified Vegan. The new Key Lime flavor is one of my favorites, and Aldo is a fan of the classic flavors, such as Strawberry-Banana.
