How to make Summer Fruit Salad

I know it’s not rocket science…thank goodness or I would still be hungry!! This summer fruit salad doesn’t require a lot of prep work, so you can have this ready in 5 minutes or less!! My big tip here is on how big to slice your fruit. Know who you are feeding, if you know this if for little ones, make the fruit easy to eat and even pick up with little fingers.

I like to slice the strawberries longways and go for for slices from each berry. The kiwi, start by cutting both ends and then stand up and slice off skin. Slice the kiwi in half and then half again and into bite sized slices. The bananas can simply be cut into slices, or cut in half lengthwise and then sliced. Everything is just wash and dump in the salad.

The last step is to make the dressing for this tasty salad. Please note, this is completely optional! The salad is incredible on its own without the dressing, but it does add just a little zip!

Fruit Salad Dressing

Fruit salad dressing just add something extra and also helps to keep the fruit fresh. For this fruit salad dressing you will take the fruit of one of the oranges, about 1/4 cup of juice, and mix it with one teaspoon brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger. If you don’t have fresh ginger, get some, keep it in your freezer, it’s nice to have around!! But really, if you don’t have fresh ginger just use 1/8 teaspoon of dry ground ginger.

Can I make Fruit Salad Ahead?

This fruit salad recipe is easy to make ahead. You can make this up to 24 hours in advance. Mix everything together, except the sliced bananas, add those just before serving.

This can be stored for up to 2 days in an air tight container in the refrigerator. The bananas might get a little brown, but the berries and oranges will still be great if you used fresh fruit when this was made.
