How to make homemade tropical fruit salad
Start by choosing your fruits! Although this recipe is named “tropical”, you should choose fruits that you like the best.
Personally, I chose:
What to do with leftover fruit salad
Personally, I love having leftover fruit salad in the fridge! Allowing the fruit to sit in the lime juices overnight makes everything that much more tasty. If you’re not making this dish for a party, make it for a weekly meal prep! Then you will have a snack anytime you need throughout the week.
How long can you store fruit salad?
Store your fruit salad in an air tight container for no more than a week. If you leave if for longer than that, the fruit will get mushy and no one wants mushy fruit!Print
This Homemade Tropical Fruit Salad is perfect for any BBQ this Summer!
