Honey-lime dressing: 

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 teaspoon lime zest

1/4 cup minced fresh mint


Fruit salad:

15 ounces fontina cheese

3 cups watermelon, cut into balls

3 cups blueberries

1 cup blackberries

Fresh mint, optional

Whisk the honey, lime juice and lime zest in a small bowl. Stir in mint; set aside.

Cut fontina into 1/2-inch thick slices, each about 2-inches wide. Cut fontina slices with a 1-1/2-inch star cookie cutter, using the handle of a small spoon to press and release cheese from cutter at star points.

Combine watermelon and berries in a large serving bowl. Top with fontina. Drizzle with reserved dressing just before serving; gently toss salad to coat. Garnish with mint if desired.
