Cook’s notes: I like to use honey vinaigrette especially when I add sweet fruit to my salads. I like how the honey brings out the sweetness of both fresh and dried fruits.  Try honey vinaigrette anytime you add strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, apples, pears, and even dried fruits like apricots and dates.
