Fresh Fruit with Yogurt Lime Sauce

    A quick, light dish that can be prepared in any season. Pick the best fruit that you can get and strive for an attractive color combination. If you cannot get strawberries for the sauce, then try mashed banana, although the color will not be as striking.

    2 tablespoons honey
