I have always been a big fan of fruit salad. I have made many variations, but I always come back to this simple fruit salad. Even though it is so simple, it is so good. One little step changes the flavor and make it fresh and light tasting. I started making this in high school. I’m not sure why I thought to put the lime juice over it. I might have put bananas in it at that time and used the lime juice to keep them from turning brown. But I now hate bananas so I don’t add them anymore.
The fruit salad so good that The Hardworking Husband will even eat it. And he’s not a big fan of fruit. He’s great about eating vegetables, but fruit is just not something he will eat often unless it’s in a pie. Like his favorite Blueberry Pie. I love fruit, but can’t seem to eat it all before it goes bad. So this salad gets us both eating more fruit. And all the ingredients are real food. That’s the best part. There’s no added sugar, no added preservatives, no pudding, no jello, just fruit and fruit juice.
