Fruit salad recipes are so versatile. You can basically mix together your favorite fruits and you will find the combinations that you like best. Try a variety of fruits that you think will work together.

Using fruits in season guarantees a wide variety of delicious fruit salads all year at a reasonable price. Try fresh plums in the later summer and fall. Even in mid winter, a fresh fruit salad on the table brings the sunshine right in.

Fruit salads are very healthy too. Mix together fruits of various colors and textures to make sure you get all the nutrients possible in one bowl.

Also, try cutting down on the sugar. Gradually you will find that the natural sweetness of the fruit is enough. Or substitute the sugar with Stevia, a natural sweetener or coconut sugar, which is much lower in carbs than regular sugar.

One of the most advantageous points for this recipe is its ability to remain fresh even after many hours of preparation when stored in refrigerator.

    Commonly used ingredients for fruit salad:

    Well first of all you must cut the bananas into smaller pieces after you ripe off its skin.
    The banana pieces must be kept in a bowl where other fruits like mango chunks, dried fruit and grapes are to be mixed in. Now you must add sweet apple after cutting it into smaller pieces along with orange ripping away its skin.

    You can add grapes from the side of the bowl but before adding it should be turned into two pieces of equal half’s. Now you can proceed with the topping by adding some oranges and blueberries. Finally fresh and healthy salad is ready.

    Salad tastes better when served chilled so it should be refrigerated.

    I loved this recipe but since it has so many fruits, I would like to create my own sub-recipe with it. We can just add a few fruits at a time to cut costs and add more variety.
