Late spring and early summer parties are my favorite.

The weather is warm enough to leave all the doors wide open for an indoor-outdoor party flow. The mosquitos are not yet a problem. (At least where we live.)

Tropical beverages seem appropriate this time of year, so I get to mix tiki drinks to my heart’s content.

Best of all, fresh fruits are finally in season, making the menu light and lively!

We are currently in the process of planning a party for later this month… Friends have been notified. The deck has been power-washed. And my menu is underway, focusing all foods that celebrate summer.

I plan to serve the Sheet Pan Low Country Broil I shared with you last week, along with pulled pork, potato salad, southern broccoli salad, homemade salsa, and this fresh and vibrant Grilled Fruit Salad with Creamy Lime Dressing.

These menu items will allow me to cook some of my side dishes ahead, then have some fresh hot items I can whip up right before the party.

Amazing Grilled Fruit Salad with Creamy Lime Dressing Recipe

Today’s Grilled Fruit Salad with Creamy Lime Dressing is a fabulous way to celebrate the season.

Grilling fresh ripe summer fruit, like watermelon, pineapple, mango and peaches, draws their natural sweetness to the surface for an intensified fruity essence.

A creamy yogurt-based dressing with lime, honey, and vanilla accentuates all the fruity flavors. It also provides a warm-cool sensation when you taste the dressing on the grilled fruit.

This Grilled Fruit Salad with Creamy Lime Dressing can be served as finger food or with utensils, and makes a wonderful addition to picnics and summer parties.

Best of all, I found all this fresh summer fruit at ALDI!  I saved a bundle on my entire party checklist, including the items for the Low Country Broil, the pork roast, and all the ingredients for the potato salad, broccoli slaw, and salsa.

I have become a true ALDI convert.

How To: Grilled Fruit Salad with Creamy Lime Dressing Recipe

I’ll admit, the first time I ever visited ALDI, I didn’t get it. Bag my own groceries?

Then a friend explained to me that every element of the ALDI shopping experience was designed to offer us the very best products at the lowest cost. From the quarter check-out carts to the layout of the shelving, ALDI makes it their goal to cut out unnecessary expenses and pass on the savings to their patrons.

Perfect Grilled Fruit Salad with Creamy Lime Dressing Recipe

Once I understood the whys of the ALDI experience, it became my favorite place to shop. I can find higher quality foods… Organics, non-gmo items, and ingredients free of hormones, dyes, and preservatives, for much less than the conventional items at regular grocery chains.

Every time I plan a party, ALDI is the first stop on my errand list. My son Carson even found an awesome old-fashioned popcorn machine there, he plans to use at our upcoming event.

    Aldi is super budget friendly and saves me a lot of money. They’re my go-to for spices, canned goods, staples, and cool seasonal items.

    I’ve never thought of doing a grilled fruit salad, it looks great!

    My husband and I had our first experience with Aldi in Ireland, and were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of produce, local cheeses, pasture-raised local meats, and even beer/wine available on offer, all for extremely reasonable prices! We sadly do not have a store near us back in the States, but make a visit whenever we’re travelling.

    Aldi has such great foods and great customer service! I have a gluten free sensitivity and one of the employees took the time to help me find the best gluten free items and even recommended a few recipes for me :)

    GORGEOUS salad ~ I need to locate an Aldis ~ are they in Los Angeles?

  21. alicia szemonposted May 15, 2017 at 9:26 pm Reply

    I love aldi’s. Their prices are better than walmart which was my primary spot until our new aldis by our house opened. Their fruit is cheap but so delicious! I love going there for any type of food.

  22. Teresaposted May 15, 2017 at 8:34 pm Reply

    I’m lucky enough to live within a couple miles of a Aldi store. I love their Special Buys and have found many great deals there from garden items to kitchen utensils. I always get some good chocolate there. My mom came with me the last time I went and bought an apple pie. She said it was delicious! Now we both shop there.

    Aldi is the best!  My husband and I are always sharing the Aldi love with friends and family. It’s been hugely important in our quest to become debt free. We can still eat delicious, good quality food while saving money.

    Fruit salads are great for Summer months. There is an Aldi’s store not too far from my house. My husband and I are going there to shop later this week.

    I love Aldi’s! We have one in our area that is being remodeled. Their produce & meats are excellent quality. I love the fact that they’ve moved towards more healthy foods. The prices allow you to get more bang for your buck. In addition, they always have great buys on seasonal department store items! Can’t wait to try out this grilled fruit recipe, also!

  30. Stacey Robersonposted May 15, 2017 at 11:26 am Reply

    I shop Aldi for their fresh produce and great prices on meat. I always stock up for a few weeks, as the closest store is about 45 minutes away.

    I haven’t shopped at Aldi yet. The stores have just come to my area.
