BEST FRUIT SALAD RECIPES that will fill your bowl with absolute deliciousness. The options are endless and all of the recipes easy to make!
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, this works like lemon/lime juice.
- Keep your fruit salad fresh by placing in airtight containers. When properly stored, fresh fruit salad can last for about 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Apples and bananas overall do not store well for a period 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.
Below are my favorite kitchen items that I consider are my essentials for making the most beautiful fruit salads.

Knives: A good set of kitchen knives is essential for preparing any meal. I just recently invested in some Cutco knives and I have not regretted it one bit. These are hands down my favorite knives I have owned.
Cutting Board: For me, this is a kitchen must-have and kitchen counter saver. While we have countertops you can cut on, I find that this extra step will preserve my counter. I also find that using a cut board makes for less clean up afterward. I love this cutting board because it has a groove all the way around the board prevent juices from running all of the counters.
Mixing Bowls: I love having a variety of sizes of mixing bowls. From small to large, I find that having at least 3 bowls of different sizes has been essential in my kitchen. I prefer Pyrex because of the durability.
Serving Spoon: I love to have a gorgeous and generous in size spoon to serve fruit salads with. I prefer to not have slots in my spoon for fruit salad so that you can enjoy all the delicious juice.
