Instructions
  1. Ok, this is real easy! Select a suitable serving bowl large enough to hold all your fruit.
  2. Prepare all the fruits, I like to cut mine in to bite size pieces.
If you are unsure how to prepare a pineapple with minimum waste, come and see our guide here. It's super!
  1. Add all the fruits to the bowl, and squeeze the juice of 1 lemon to the fruits. Then very very gently, toss the fruits so everything is nicely mixed. I like to just use my hands and turn the fruit very gently. That way I don't damage or bruise the fruit. Cover with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for a few hours or over night.
  2. If you would like to add a little sweetness to the fruit salad, you can use our Basic Syrup recipe. This needs to be allowed to cool, and poured sparingly just before serving. If you add it to the fruit too early, it can make the fruit go slimy so I advise, just add 10 or 20 minutes before serving for best results.
  3. In a pan, add the water and sugar and bring to a gentle boil until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer to a jug and allow to completely cool, then it's ready! Told you it was easy!
