Help with Fruit Salad

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?

the joy of fruit salad is you can put what ever you want in it.

I usually use orange juice to keep it fresh, and personally I would stay away from bananas because they just never seem to work.

yeah I was thinking for bananas, since I have a few people in my family who LOVE them, I would just cut them at the Breakfast and put the bowl on a large plate, and surround the bottom of the bowl with the bananas.
