    During spring and summer, throwing together a fruit salad is so easy.  Dump in some delicious fresh berries, mix, done!

 I just love berries, so it I only have eyes for them when they are ripe and delicious.  But we are heading into the season where a couple of things happen.  

1. Berries get super expensive. 2. They taste like crap anyway. So we have to scramble and do something different.

Cutting board filled with sliced bananas, kiwi, chopped apples and oranges.

   We went to a family get together recently and I was asked to bring fruit.  So I put together some of my favorites for this time of year.  

The only problem is I didn’t want the apples and bananas to turn brown between the time I cut them and serving time.  I knew a little lemon juice would help a lot, but I didn’t want it to be too sour so I added a bit of honey too.  

It is simple, but really delicious, healthy and fresh.  It is a perfect fruity side for the fall and winter season… then back to berries!

I see bananas in the salad but I don't see them in the ingredients list.

Fruit salad is always a favorite around our house; changing it up for fall and winter is a great idea. Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday last week!

It is such a simple side, but for some reason is one of those things I can overthink. This is a great way to get it ready for the new season!

You definitely could have it year round, I just fall in love with berries during the spring and summer and forget all other fruit even exist (other than local peaches when they're in season of course!) Thank you!

I love fruit salads, but never know how to "dress" them! Thanks for the delicious recipe to try :)

Isn't it strange how something so simple can be so hard! I used to be the same way. But a bit of honey and lemon juice really does the trick without masking the flavor of the fruit. Thanks!
