Fruit Salad


juice of 1 large lemon
1/4 cup sugar or mild honey
2 red, green, or yellow apples, cored and cut into pieces
2 large oranges, peeled, seeded, pith removed, and sectioned
1 large or 2 small ripe pears, cored and chunked
1 banana, halved lengthwise and thickly sliced
2 kiwifruits, peeled and cut into chunks
2 cups melon balls (watermelon, cantaloupe, or other ripe melon)
2 peaches, nectarines, or plums, pitted and cubed
1 cup whole berries (small strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or a combination)
1 cup seedless red or green grapes, halved


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and sweetener. This acidic mixture will keep the fruit from browning for a few hours or overnight. Add the fruit, one kind at a time, tossing gently after each addition, striving for a colorful mixture. If it seems too dry, add a splash of fresh orange juice.
