1] You can select different colors your fruit to the finished product for the eye also visually appealing fashion. Add no fresh banana salad for mixing. I avoid artificial additives always fresh fruit, when I go to the trouble and expense.

2] For the best fruit salad have to pull sugar on the fruit in the natural juices set. Sugar substitute for diabetics or diets used some of each are to smash but gently of the fruit. I use about a cup or two of sugar for the entire amount – and as a result a huge amount! The juice of this salad is almost the best part of it – almost! Keep in mind that the fruit has to start with the highest natural sugars in it, and consider it as a sugar – especially cherries. Have a reduced sugar diet, either to avoid or have small portions!

3] I always the grapes and cherries cut in the Middle, so that the sugar can draw out the juices, as well as receive. I bought the grapes sales were a little mad, but once this salad was ready, they were fantastic! This is the amount that I use in my giant yellow mixing bowl – a 5-gallon container! (This is my cut up and serve bowl – smiling) I can be scholars such as jarring sour fruit in this, if I the grapes in one of my first batches not cutting.

4] I the grapes and cherries with the sugar mixed and went over my watermelon, melon, peaches, cut and whatever. When I went back about an hour later, that is, how well she had juiced. The amount of sugar is totally you leave, but are the recipes for canning syrup: light = 1 cup sugar, 1 cup sugar, 2 cups water, 3 cups water, medium = & heavy = 1 cup sugar, 1 cup of water. So you can light syrup fruit has some sugar in it! When processing the fruit for canning, some water evaporates, as reduced even during the water-water down the juice taste and heating the food! These one or two cups sugar the volume not much is the salad, to the end, bearing in mind with!

5] I use usually a half watermelon and a half cantaloupe or musk melon. In this way I can make another batch of this a few days later – fantastic salad because it’s gone anyway normally until then! Open before cutting a melon any kind remember melon stored well without problem two weeks – since – and actually age go down can stay. So if you see it on sale this week and no other fruit on sale, buy it and save it. Buy it on the last day of it is sales and the next day, different fruits another selection of fruit, probably on sale and 8 days later may be for sale. I bought three weeks after the fruit on sale for a period of 9 days, because I waited to see what would be on sale the third week. It happened to green seedless grapes from $1.99 $.99 a pound a day 9 – an important element in my fav fruit salad combo!

6], Select the combination of fruits, the you and your family. As a guide are here the higher and lower sugar fruits in categories a little easier. I’m not all fruits – just contain the types that can be as follows used in a marinade salad. The fruits should be nicely ripe, with no brown spots. A piece of unripe peach or pear – ruin even slightly – this salad texture! If you add a tropical fruit mix, ensure the mangoes, or what also always HARD are not ROCK!

High sugar fruits:

The addition of lemon juice helps fresh look like fruits that are brown – like pears – but can over power the flavor. The sugar also helps the fruit
