Tips for a perfect fruit salad
- Skip the frozen fruit for a fresh and vibrant fruit salad.
- Add the lime juice, mint and lime zest at time of serving
- If you want to add fruits prone to going brown quickly, add them right at time of serving. These are fruits like apples, pears, and bananas.
Get creative with your bright salad ingredients!
You certainly don't have to use all the same fruits I use. You can easily add things like honeydew, kiwi, banana, mango, peaches, cherries, and nectarines!
Really any fruit you want!
Money saving tip- use the fruit varieties that are in season in your area.
Fruit salad - breakfast AND dessert!
Add this salad to your breakfast bento boxes with hard boiled egg for a great spring and summer breakfast meal prep.
Or, add a nice heap of whipped cream and enjoy this a a sweet dessert!
How to store fruit salad
Store in an air tight container for up to 2 days. The fruits will start to release their juices. The salad will get sweeter as it sits too.
Don't add the lime juice, mint leaves, or lime zest until right before serving.
I actually prefer this salad on day 2!
