Fruit Salad Tips:

  • Now to keep your fruit salad from turning brown simply squeeze lemon or lime juice over the freshly cut fruit and toss to coat. This method works well for bananas, pears, and apples. The lemon juice can be fresh or bottles, which I typically have on hand in my fridge. You can also use a product called Fruit Fresh, which works like lemon/lime juice.
  • Keep your fruit salad fresh by placing it in airtight containers. When properly stored, fresh fruit salad can last for about 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Two exceptions are apples and bananas – overall they do not store well for that length of time.
  • If your fruit salad is sitting at room temperature do not let it sit out for more than 2 hours. This is 2 hours today, from the minutes you cut and prepare the fruit, serving and eating your fruit salad should not be out more than this.
  • Have leftover fruit salad and not sure what to do with it? Place 1 cup serving in individual Ziplock bags, zip shut, and place bags in the freezer. These make great smoothies for later.
Fruit salad is not only a great side dish but also makes a great breakfast and snack. It’s even better when shared. So whether you are having a few friends over, attending a potluck, or celebrating Easter {not too far off} – you can whip one of these Best Fruit Salad Recipes in just a few minutes.
