Fresh Fruit Salad is my very favorite fresh fruit salad. This fruit salad is so very refreshing and also low in calories. When making this Fresh Fruit Salad, I use whatever fresh fruit is in season. The easy-to-make banana dressing is very light and compliments the fruits. You will never want to make a “yucky” canned fruit salad again!
My mother-in-law, Gertrude Zemp, taught me to make this delightful Fresh Fruit Salad when I was a young bride – that was a few years ago!
Banana Dressing (see recipe below) 5 to 6 cups of a variety of fresh fruits of your choice (be creative):
Bananas, peeled and sliced Blueberries Green or red grapes, halved Kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced Pears, peeled and sliced Peaches, peeled and sliced Raspberries Strawberries, hulled and sliced Mangoes, skinned, cored and sliced Pineapple, cored, peeled and sliced Watermelon, flesh removed and cut into bite-size pieces, flesh removed and cut into bite-size pieces Cantaloupe, flesh removed and cut into bite-size pieces, flesh removed and cut into bite-size pieces
Prepare banana dressing; set aside until ready to use.
In a large bowl or container, combine all the prepared fruits.
Pour prepared Banana Dressing over the cut-up fruits; gently toss to coat all the fruit.

Serve family style or for a gourmet look, serve in chilled cocktail glasses.
