This is my slight variation of an old Southern Living recipe. I made it for the family Christmas dinner one year and everyone wanted more. The original calls for honeydew melon balls, but I had no honeydew on hand, so added an extra apple. I also diced the apples, cut the grapes in half and cut the orange sections into halves to make everything easier for the children to eat. The original called for 1 sliced apple. The preparation time does not include chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all fruits, except bananas, in large bowl. Combine juices and honey and pour over fruit, tossing lightly to coat all pieces. Cover and chill 2 hours. Add banana just before serving.

Wonderful! I was taught to make fresh fruit salad in cookery classes when I was 11 years old, and this is a similar techique to all those years ago! I had to run a little bit free on the selection of fresh fruit I had available - I had oranges, apricots, grapes, apples, pears and the honey and the fruit I went with those! I garnished my salad with mint leaves and we enjoyed this for breakfast with croissants and apricot jam! Made for 5 A Day in the photos forum - thanks so much for reminding me of this simple recipe!
