Help with Fruit Salad

Posted by on Apr. 8, 2009 at 8:24 PM

Everyone in my family always brings a dish for every holiday gathering, and I am making a large fruit salad for Easter Sunday breakfast.

I have been looking at several recipes, and pictures, but I just can't decide what to include, or if I have to many fruits in this. Let me know what you think

This is what I was THINKING of putting in there:

Cubed Watermelon

Cubed Cantaloupe

Green and Purple seedless grapes

Sliced Strawberries

Sliced Kiwi

Sliced oranges


Is that to many, or a weird combination? Also how do I keep it fresh? I am def making it the morning of Easter, but how do I keep it from "wilting" and looking dullish as it sits? Lemon juice?

I would take out the kiwi.And I did see on a cooking show a splash of lemon juice would keep it fresh.

If you add lemon juice, add a little honey  to balance it, but other than the kiwis and strawberries everything else will do fine.  Why not prepare everything else and add the kiwis and strawberries at the last minute?

You could make one of those edible arrangements.  That's what I'm going to do for my DD's birthday party this weekend.  You can find a ton of instructional videos online.

I would use the Mandrin Oranges and Pineapple.

Not sure how the Kiwi and the sliced oranges are gonna hold up.
