      Thank you! I love how colorful this salad is!

    Just wondering if there is any way this salad can be prepared ahead of time? Perhaps without the dressing?

      cut up fruit ahead or baggies’ or place in separate bowls. apples and pears will need something on them to stop browning.

    Does this keep well refrigerated? If so, for about how long?

    • Julia December 17, 2016, 7:36 pm

      It’s better served immediately.

        This recipe looks great. I imagine that the lime juices would prevent the apples and Pears from browning?

        To further Kallee’s question, is there any downsides to serving this after refrigerating? I would think that the juices would slightly rehydrate the crainsins and the flavors would blend. kiwi I do find best served immediately because it’s so soft. Thanks!

    The lime juice is a lovely addition this fruit salad. Don’t leave it out!

    • Julia January 2, 2017, 11:43 pm

      Yes, I agree, the lime juice give a nice flavor to the rest of the fruit! 🙂
