Step 1

Squeeze limes and oranges into a bowl and mix in honey.  Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and when hot, pour in the sauce.  Bring it to a light simmer, then pour in the arrowroot starch mixed with water.  Stir immediately so the sauce does not clump and remove from the heat to let it cool and thicken, about 6 to 8 minutes.

Add all of the ingredients for the salad in a large bowl and mix everything together.

Step 3

Pour in the sauce/syrup and gently fold the fruits and veggies in the sauce.

Step 4

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
