Frequently asked questions

How do you keep fruit salad from turning brown?

When making a fruit salad recipe bowl, you often think about the fruits that usually turn brown. You wonder how to prevent this from happening. Fruits like bananas, apples, and pears tend to change color. To prevent this from happening, simply squeeze a generous amount over the fruit salad bowl. Toss it together to coat the fruits. It is ok to use either fresh or store-bought lemons.

Will Vinegar keep fruits from turning brown?

Using something acidic like vinegar on your fruit salad recipe will work but the resulting flavor wouldn’t be great. It is best to use lemons instead. Honey is usually another great and sweet way to keep your fruits from turning brown. I used honey for this fruit salad recipe even though none of the fruits used will turn brown.

How to jazz up a fruit salad?

Adding a touch of lemon or lime juice with a little bit of honey or agave will take your fruit salad to the next level with some added flavor. Some even add a touch of vanilla to it.

Recipe notes and tips

  • Don’t limit yourself to using only berries, you may also add in any other fruits you like.
  • Thoroughly soak and wash your berries. They usually have a lot of tiny bugs and dirt in their crevices.
  • Do add the lime juice especially if you are making a large batch and planning on saving some.
  • Enjoy with some yogurt or fruit dip. Perfect to take to potlucks, especially for the 4th of July. Serve it with crumbled cheese like feta cheese or even goat cheese.

Storing

Store leftovers in a sealed bowl in the fridge for up to 7 days. You may freeze the leftover berries in a freezer-safe ziplock bag for up to 4 months and use them in smoothies and other desserts like this berries cottage cheese ice cream, or this berries baked oatmeal.

  1. Has anyone made this with other fruits added . . . like grapes, kiwis, bananas (I know they’d have to go in last-mintuute because they definitely turn brown!), maybe pineapple? Just curious.

    Hey Rena,

    I use the same ingredients sans the lime, honey, poppy seed and mint leaves.
    I prepare a syrup and add a 1/4 cup of Cherry Liqueur, and blend the lot together, bear in mind the strawberries have been hulled and the raspberries, blackberries and blueberries have been washed and drained including the strawberries. As an aside none of these berries go brown.
    After soaking in the laced syrup overnight, the fruit salad is then served with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream.
    The final serve looks like a fruit salad with a dollop of ice-cream on top. I have found that the gents prefer the serving without the ice-cream.
    That’s my recipe and hope some may give it a burl.
    Cheers, Alan
