Arbor Day Fruit Salad Recipe

  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 1 pear, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup of cherries, pitted and halved
  • 1 orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts, roughly chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish (optional)
  • Honey or maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)
  1. Prepare the Fruit: In a large bowl, combine the chopped apple, pear, cherries, orange sections, and sliced banana. Toss gently to mix.
  2. Add Lemon Juice: Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the fruit. This not only adds a zesty flavor but also helps to keep the fruit from browning.
  3. Toss with Nuts: Add the chopped walnuts to the bowl, giving everything a nice toss to ensure the nuts are evenly distributed. The walnuts add a lovely crunch and are great for heart health!
  4. Sweeten if Desired: If you like your fruit salad a bit sweeter, drizzle a little honey or maple syrup over the top and toss again to coat evenly.
  5. Chill and Serve: Refrigerate the salad for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together beautifully.
  6. Garnish and Enjoy: Before serving, garnish with fresh mint leaves for an extra touch of freshness.
Serving Suggestions:
  • Top with a dollop of Greek yogurt for a creamy addition.
  • Serve over a bed of fresh spinach for a healthful salad twist.
