Recipe Notes

Can fruit salad be made ahead?

Yes! This salad can be prepared and dressed up to 24 hours in advance. The berries will start to break down as they sit in the dressing; however, so if you want the fruit to stay fresh longer, just wait to add the dressing until you're ready to serve.

How long does fruit salad last?

Once you add the dressing, the fruit salad will keep in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

If you wait to add the dressing until you're ready to serve, the fruit will stay fresh for 3-5 days.

Can fruit salad be frozen?

I do NOT recommend freezing this fruit salad. When thawed, the berries will have a mushy texture.

How much fruit salad per person?

If serving a crowd, it's safe to assume at least 4 ounces of fruit salad per person. This recipe contains approximately 40 ounces of fruit, so it will serve about 10 people. Obviously, larger appetites will require larger servings!
