Step 1: Combine and Cook Ingredients

Begin your fruit salad dressing adventure by grabbing a saucepan and combining the sugar, flour, salt, orange juice, lemon juice, pineapple juice, and honey. Whisk these ingredients together until they're perfectly blended. Then, place your saucepan over medium heat, bringing the mixture to a boil. Keep stirring gently and consistently. As soon as it thickens and becomes bubbly, which should take between 2 to 5 minutes, remove it from the heat. Let it cool down. This step infuses the dressing with a harmony of flavors, striking a beautiful balance between sweet and tangy.
Pro Tip: Consistent stirring is key to avoid any lumps and achieve a silky texture.

Step 2: Serve Over Fruit

Once your dressing has cooled to room temperature, it's time to marry it with the fruit. Prepare a large bowl of assorted fruits - think cantaloupe, strawberries, grapes, and a touch of blueberries for that pop of color (and antioxidants!). Then, gently pour your homemade dressing over the fruit, tossing gently to ensure every piece is kissed by this delightful concoction. If you find yourself with leftover dressing, don't worry! It can be refrigerated for up to a week, ready to brighten up any future fruit salads or even to use as a sweet dip.
Pro Tip: The dressing can cover a salad made from 5 lbs of fruit, adjust quantities as needed.
