Simple Fruit Salad

By Aaron

While there is a time and place for everything, when it comes to fruit salad my motto is keep it simple! This means no sugar – brown, granulated, confectioner’s, caster or otherwise. No simple syrup. No cream cheese, heavy cream or mayonnaise. No mustard (yes, some recipes call for mustard). No granola or marshmallows. No whipped cream. No gelatin. No instant vanilla pudding. No sour cream. And no shrimp paste. Whew! Am I forgetting anything? Oh, yeah. No canned fruit! Who needs all this nonsense when you can enjoy delectable, naturally-sweet, fresh fruit on its own. Let the fruit shine, people!

I was surprised to find how difficult it was to track down a simple fruit salad that wasn’t marred by the addition of so many superfluous ingredients. This one comes close. (I’d personally add some fresh blueberries and raspberries.) Enjoy!

  1. this sucks kyh like fuking sucks and my best freind is jannel so fuk u guys and i love lil wayne so much i used to go out wiv ope but i still love him

  2. I like adding a bit of lemon/lime juice for a touch of tartness and to stop browning.

  3. My mom always cut up whatever leftover fruit we had on hand and added a touch of lemon to prevent browning and a generous douse of nutmeg. It’s amazing how much flavor nutmeg can bring out in a well-made fruit salad. Five Spice is another great option as well as a few chopped up walnuts to add some crunch.

  4. Personally I love adding a bit of unsweetened whipped cream on top of fruit. goes especially good with strawberries and blueberries.
