If you are thinking about ideas for something red, white, and blue to bring to a July 4th gathering, consider this simple mixed berry and banana salad. It’s light and easy, with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, chopped apple, and bananas, tossed together with honey and lemon juice.

Mixed Berry and Banana Fruit Salad Recipe

Print
  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups hulled, roughly chopped strawberries
  • A handful of raspberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, roughly chopped
  • 2 bananas, peeled and thickly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Method

Prep the berries before the bananas and apples, and add them to a large bowl. As soon as you add the bananas and apples, sprinkle lemon juice over them to keep them from getting brown. Add the zest and the honey and gently toss to combine.

Serve immediately. Or cover and chill for up to 2 hours before serving.

    Thanks for the recipe! I love fruit all by itself, but the addition of the honey and the lemon zest was nice.

  • Margaret

    Thank you for this recipe! It was a perfect addition to your buttermilk fried chicken recipe, with mashed potatoes, gravy, and green beans. My husband devoured the fruit, declaring it the best fruit salad he had ever had. He doesn’t say that lightly. The lemon and honey were a perfect addition to an already delicious fruit combo.

    So glad he liked it! ~Elise
