I can hear the Wiggles now – “Fruit Salad, yummy yummy!” If you have kids, you know what I’m talking about.
I always serve fruit salad with dessert for our family parties. My kids and the other young guests love fruit salad, and for the gluten-intolerant in our family, it gives them something tasty to eat for dessert. If there is leftover fruit salad, it’s always gone the next day.
Optional Glaze: jam of choice thinned to a liquid consistency with water
Rinse the berries gently and pat them dry. The grapes need to be rinsed, too, though you can soak them in water for a bit if you need to work on the rest of the salad.
Prepare the rest of the fruit and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Guests prefer not to take several bites of a piece of fruit.
Fruit Salad can be prepared up to a day ahead of time, especially if you wait until the last minute to include wetter fruits like oranges and watermelon. If you choose to use the glaze, mix it gently into the fruit the morning of the party and let the salad marinate in the fridge.
