This is a refreshing fruit salad with a light citrus dressing that will be a hit on any buffet or potluck menu. Simple to make, and delicious to eat-this needs to chill for at least an hour before serving. This recipe will serve 50 to 54 people.

Delicious! I did scale it down for us and did to taste, not measure precisely. I omitted the honeydew as it had gone bad. I used red seedless watermelon, baby cantaloupes, red seedless grapes, no green grapes this time as I didn't have them on hand, definitely less sugar, plus the rest of the citrus fruits freshly squeezed. I will make this again and include all the fruit called for and no sugar if it is just for myself or less as last time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut all melon flesh into cubes, or use a melon baller.
  2. Combine sugar and all fruit juices, then pour over fruit, tossing to coat.
  3. Cover and chill for at least one hour, and use a slotted spoon when serving.
  4. Serving suggestion: Instead of serving the fruit salad out of a regular bowl, try cutting the watermelon in half length-wise, remove flesh as instructed above, then use the empty'shell' as the serving bowl for the finished fruit salad.
