Recipe Notes

You can use any fruit you like for this recipe. Add in blueberries or blackberries and skip the kiwi. It's up to you. I prefer to use fruits with a variety of colors. 

If you are not serving within an hour wait to dice the bananas and add them in closer to when you will serve them. 

Can I make this Fruit Salad in Advance:

When planning a party or get together I know making food in advance makes the day of so much easier. I would suggest prepping this salad the day before and then tossing it together when you are ready to serve.

Dice all your fruit expect your bananas. They usually tend to go back the fastest so I would wait until the day of for those. Seal and place your diced fruit in the fridge. You can also mix your dressing ingredients together and store in a separate container in the fridge. When you are ready to serve dice and add bananas with your fruit then toss with the dressing.
