Helpful hints

  • Substitute with any low potassium fruits of your choice. Make it colorful! (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or a mixture).
  • This is my family’s favorite fruit salad recipe and a great potluck item. It’s best to eat it the same day because it can get watery overnight.
  • Reduce ingredients in half to make a smaller amount.
