Tips and substitutions

  • Serve this fruit salad with whipped cream or ice cream for a luscious finish.
  • Change up the fruit! Add in chopped pineapple, cherries, bananas, blueberries, apples, and more.
  • If you want to add sliced bananas into the salad, mix them in right before serving so they won’t turn brown.
  • Juice the oranges and lemons yourself if you can! This will help your syrup taste its best.
  • To make this fruit salad vegan, replace the honey with maple syrup or agave.
  • Try to cut all of the fruit into evenly sized pieces. This will make for easy eating and a nice presentation.
  • I don’t recommend using frozen fruit instead of fresh. Once it thaws, frozen fruit turns mushy and has lots of excess liquid. The salad just won’t taste as good.
