Few things in life are better than having healthy food ready when you need it most. That’s why fruit salad in a jar is so genius. Keep a jar of fruit salad in the fridge at all times and your family will have no option but to eat it!

Fruit Salad in a Jar

Fruit Salad in a Jar is the perfect way to get your family eating more fruit on a daily basis. All you have to do is prepare it when you are the least busy and eat it when you are the most busy!

Prep Time 45 minutes
Servings 10 people


  • 7-8 cups fruit of choice
  • 1 tsp citrus juice up to 1 Tbsp.


  1. Choose 4-6 fruits to peel and dice for your fruit salad. Some ideas for fruit are: strawberries, apples, oranges, cantaloupe, honeydew, blueberries, pineapple, kiwis, peaches, plums, pears, grapes, and cherries.

  2. If you are going to be eating this fruit salad throughout the week, leave out any bananas, mangoes, and raspberries/blackberries until you are ready to eat it.

  3. Put all the fruit in one large bowl and add a small amount of citrus juice (1 tsp to 1 Tbsp. or so). Stir well then put into mason jars or other storage containers for the fridge.

Recipe Notes

The fruit salad should fill up at least two quart-sized mason jars.

It should last at least 4 days in the fridge. I've eaten fruit salad like this after 5 or 6 days and it still tastes great.
