Choose whatever fruit you like that is in season – these fruits are suggestions. Try raspberries, sour cherries, pineapples, bananas, papayas, mangoes, etc. if these grow in your area. Use about 3 lbs. of fruit, wash it, and cut it into bite-sized pieces.
Put your fruit in a large bowl, preferably glass or wood.
In a small saucepan over low heat, mix the honey, water, and lemon juice. Heat very gently, just until honey and water is slightly warm and combined. Add the lemon juice, vanilla, and poppy seeds and stir until combined. This is a great project for small children to help with!
Pour the dressing over your fruit and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.
