- Fruit Salad Dressing – We made a simple dressing for this side dish. We made it out of honey and lime, but you can use what you prefer. Make a dressing out of lemon juice or orange juice. Add in a tablespoon of vanilla for a warm flavor.
- Fruit – Feel free to change the fruit to what you prefer. There are many red fruits and white fruits to choose from. I have even mixed in some fresh mint for the perfect addition.
- Bananas – If you are worried about the bananas turning brown, simply stir ¼ cup of lemon juice with a banana. When you are ready to serve drain the lemon juice from the bananas then mix with the other fruit.
Can I Make this Fruit Salad ahead of time?
Yes, you can make this fruit salad ahead of time. I like to prepare the salad but washing and cutting up the fruits. Then when I am ready to serve make the dressing and pour over the fruit. This saves me time to have to prepare everything at once.

This salad is best served immediately. If you do have leftovers, store in the fridge and then serve within a few days. The fruit may get soggy if stored over 3 days. Make sure to store in an air tight container.
