Summer fruit salads are delicious au naturel, but even better well-dressed. Here are some Chowhounds’ favorite dressings for fruit.

Citrus and honey combinations are popular. gatorfoodie likes to toss melon with honey, mint, and grated ginger for a little zing, and dexters uses a little mint, lime juice, lime zest, and a modest squeeze of honey.

sugarbuzz goes for yuzu or lemon juice, sugar, and finely chopped Thai basil, while soypower uses cinnamon and lemon juice.

For stone fruit and strawberries, cyberroo likes to use mint sugar (sugar and fresh mint blended until homogeneous), saying, “The mint just makes it seem like more than just fruit in a bowl.”
