Can you eat the fruit salad the next day?

Of course, you can. However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Depending on what other ingredients are added, such as yogurt or whipped topping, the salad may not last as long.

Can I cut the fruit the night before?

Yes, you can cut the majority of the fruit the night before. For those that may change in color, use lemon juice on them or wait to cut until you put the salad together.

Why should you not mix fruits and vegetables together?

In general, you will find that fruits begin to go bad before most vegetables do. It is not good to combine fruits that do not last with vegetables that last a long time.

How do you keep fruit from turning brown in a fruit salad?

Once the fruit salad is put together, you should drizzle an amount of lemon juice over the salad. This helps to prevent the fruits from turning brown.
