Berries and Banana Fruit Salad

Get out your red, white, and blue with this simple fruit salad of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, apple, and bananas, tossed with honey and lemon juice.

  • 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.

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

    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

    This is in fact what I made for our 4th of July picnic but I didn’t think to add the lemon and honey and wish I had because our bananas did indeed turn brown. But the kids (and adults) loved a little Red, White, and Blue dessert (which I’ve also done as Red, White and Blue Fruit Kabobs btw!). Thanks for the tip Elise!
