Dole: Tangy Poppy Seed Fruit Salad

I love summer.  Love. It.  It's all warm outside, and there's tons of awesome things to eat.  You can go to the farmer's market and pick up a metric ton of fruit that's luscious and ripe and bursting at the seams.  It's fantastic.  So of course I had to take advantage of this amazing time of year by making a big 'ol bowl of fruit salad.  And then trying to figure out exactly how much I could eat before making myself sick. (Answer: a lot).

Note: I added a mango to the mix, and it was awesome.  I also used a drained 10.7-ounce can of mandarin orange wedges instead of peeling a navel orange.  Because I'm lazy like that.
