My Mother's Simple Fruit Salad

Total Time

I just lost my mom a few weeks ago. I have been thinking about all the things that made her special to us. This fruit salad is one of them. I remember her making this for us and while it is simple to make, it is delicious.


  1. Peel and slice bananas and toss with just enough lemon juice to keep them from browning.
  2. Chop apple into bite size pieces.
  3. Wash grapes and combine with chopped apples, sliced bananas and chopped pecans.
  4. Add mayonnaise and stir until creamy and mixed through the fruit evenly.
  5. Enjoy!

Made this recipe as given, with one exception ~ I toasted the pecans, which I thought added a nice touch to an already VERY NICE TASTING SALAD! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]

My family makes this fruit salad for our thanksgiving dinner. We also add a small can of crushed pineapple which has been drained. On thanksgiving morning my sister and I knew that it was our job to halve and seed the grapes for this.
