  • Cook's Note:
  • Red raspberries can be substituted for the strawberries. The lemon juice acts as a preservative so that the bananas don't turn brown.

Simple, delicious, and with the July 4th holiday just around the corner this would be a great pound cake or short cake topper, not to mention vanilla ice cream! I cut the recipe in half and used Splenda instead of sugar. Great after dinner treat!

We all enjoyed this fruit salad very much. I didn't add much sugar, just a couple tablespoons over the strawberries after I'd cut them, then I folded in the blueberries and bananas. At the last, I sprinkled in FRESH lemon juice. I think adding a full half cup of sugar would do a disservice to the natural sweetness of the fruit.

Beautiful, delicious and seasonally appropriate since strawberries and blueberries are plentiful and reasonably priced now. I liked the addition of the bananas, which provided a creamy contrast in texture as well as its role in the "red, white and blue." I skipped the sugar entirely and just gave it a drizzle of honey. This was a perfect and fresh addtion to our Memorial Day Breakfast.

This went over very well at our holiday party tonight. We had another family over, and the fruit was a hit with adults and kids alike. My husband is not wild about blueberries, but even liked them in this, and said the bananas were "divine" with the "sauce." Next time he wants me to make it with cherries instead of blueberries.

Delicious! Very fast and easy recipe! Great for any summer get-together and the fact that it looks patriotic is just another plus.

Quick, easy and delicious. Did not add sugar because I thought the fruit was sweet enough. Will definitely use this recipe again.

This was a very simple, festive, and tasty salad to make! Instead of sugar, I used about 3-5 tablespoons of honey, and mixed with equal parts lemon and lime juice. The honey created lots of "juice" for the fruit. The bananas did go a bit soggy after a few hours, but not as fast as they would have without the citrus. Pineapple or mango would work great as well. As long as the fruit is light enough in color, it makes a great contrast for the berries. This is also great served over pound cake, shortcake, angel food cake, etc, and topped with whipped cream. Yum!!
