    Fruit Salad does this recipe sit well for several hours before serving. I wondered because of the bananas in it.

    If I were you, I would read at least some of the reviews to see what others that have made the recipe did/didn't do.
    Personally, since none of the fruit is drained (I believe the fruit juices/syrups are used as the liquid for the pudding mix), I would add the sliced banana just before serving. Dipping the banana slices in a bit of lemon juice keeps them from turning brown.

    Since it is only 1 banana (a small amount compared to the amounts of other fruits) you could just leave it out.

    Yes, this fruit salad will hold well for several hours, even a day or two. Two bits of information gave me this conclusion. A) The author's note indicates that it's often brought to potluck events (requires making it at home then taken to the event where it's placed out on the serving table until the event is over). and B) the last instruction is to chill the salad before serving it.

    The dressing made from the can juices and pudding mix is thick enough to keep all the fruit pieces completely coated preventing exposure to air.
