This Tropical Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing is going to be the star of the show! Featuring a variety of tropical fruit and tossed with a honey lime dressing, there’s a bright burst of flavors in every bite!
A few weeks ago, the whole family headed out to watch The Jungle Book at the theater. We had been anxiously awaiting the release of this movie and were not disappointed. Not only was the movie really fun – the whole family enjoyed it tremendously and we all fell in love with our favorite characters all over again, particularly Baloo.
A few days after seeing the movie it came to my attention that an audiobook for Rudyard Kipling’s novel The Jungle Book: Mowgli Stories was available on Audible (an Amazon company). I had first heard about Audible from my brother-in-law Scott. He loves listening to audio books during his long commute and has always highly recommended Audible to me. I have been wanting to try it out for awhile now and finally got a chance to do so this last week.
After signing up for the FREE 30-day trial, I quickly downloaded the audio interpretation of Rudyard Kipling’s novel The Jungle Book: Mowgli Stories. The boys were so excited to listen to it after school one day and as excited as they were, I think I was even more so. The audiobook is really an experience. The music and well-known voices bring the book to life in a way that I never could just reading it out loud to my kids. I love that they were able to just listen and be thoroughly entertained. They may have even liked this more than the movie…it’s a close call :)
Since that day I have been busy checking out new titles and old that I want to add to my “reading” list. As an avid book reader, I have found that I really don’t have the time I used to have to devote to reading and Audible is a more than adequate substitute.
As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, A LOT. Listening to an audiobook while I’m in the kitchen cooking and baking is both peaceful and fulfilling. I’m hooked.
With summer coming up, I am going to devote a little time each day with the boys to sitting down and listening to a book. I figure we can get through several books over the course of the summer, if not more.
I’ve started a wish list just for myself, of course. I’m all about my timeouts you know :) I’ve got the The Time Traveler’s Wife for those days I’m feeling emotional and the Outlander series for days when I just want to be swept away into a whole new world. Audible does a tremendous job and matching up voice talents with the genre and style of the books. I was floored by the reviews left by so many users and it’s proof that not all audiobooks are created equally.

Watching the movie and listening to the book got me all inspired in the kitchen, hence this jungle-themed Tropical Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing that I’m sharing with you today. I had to get the honey in there because of Baloo. This salad is a showstopper. Papayas, mangoes, kiwis, pineapple, strawberries, and star fruit make this salad impossible to resist. A special treat for sure and one that we will be enjoying many more times this summer.
I sure hope you give it a try!
