Fruit Salad with Sweet Orange Cream...Summer Salad Linky Party!

Free summer sun clip artI am craving all things summer right now! Warm days, late nights, no alarm clocks, and simple, light lunches and dinners cause it's to hot to do anything else! Here's my problem, I only know like 2 salad recipes.
I love salad, it's my favorite thing to order when we go out to eat, but I just don't know how to make any really good "meal" salads. I'm hoping you'll help...
I'm opening a "Super Summer Salad" linky party!!! 
I'm leaving it open indefinitely, hoping that we can all benefit from it's spoils!
Please, please, share your recipes for quick, easy, light, summer meals and salads...I know I don't want to spend my summer over a hot stove, do you?

I'll get us started...
This is by far my FAVORITE salad, ever! It makes a perfect lunch on it's own or goes so well with a chicken salad croissant sandwich. It's so quick and easy, 15 minutes max. And made with fresh, yummy fruit that is often on hand.
{I served this at my oldest daughter's baptism-it was a super hit! I get asked  to make it all the time.)
Ya, my mouth is watering...give it a try.
I won't think any less of you if you end up drinking the dressing (only because I've done it myself!)
