Tips for Making Easter Fruit Salad
We love a good make-ahead recipe, but this recipe really shines when you prep it and eat it the same day.
Choose fruits that are ripe and sweet but not too mushy, so they hold their shape when you toss them with the couscous.
If you can find whole wheat couscous, go ahead and use it in this Easter Fruit Salad! You’ll add extra fiber and nutrients and you’ll still enjoy a delicately-textured grain.
Let your couscous fully cool before tossing with the fruits. You can serve this salad at room temperature or chilled. It’s delicious both ways!
