Red White and Blue, Berry and Banana Fruit Salad

If you can get your hands on some good berries, you'll definitely want to make this festive, red-white-and-blue fruit salad. It's super fun for patriotic holidays, especially with the star-shaped bananas. But you can really make this any time you have a bunch of berries on hand.

Servings 6 people


  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2-3 large bananas
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest


  1. Add prepared berries to a large bowl.

  2. Thickly slice your bananas, and cut star shapes if desired.

  3. Gently add banana slices to bowl with the berries.

  4. Add lemon juice, then gently stir. This will help keep the bananas from turning brown.

  5. Add honey and lemon zest, and gently stir again.
