Mixed Berry and Banana Fruit Salad Recipe

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


  • 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


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.

    This looks both yummy and festive. Everyone loves a patriotic banana. We shake up our 4th of July meals quite a lot. but every year, sure as shootin’, we watch the community fireworks while drinking Fresca through Red Vine straws. I’m not sure how this tradition got started but we couldn’t celebrate independence without it. Happy 4th!
