My kids are obsessed with all things green on St. Patrick’s Day so we threw together this super quick and super easy green fruit salad to celebrate – and it was a hit!

We’re a fruit-loving family and have no problem eating any of these ingredients, but there was something special about mixing them together and giving it a theme that made my girls go crazy over this fruit salad.

Did you know? Green fruits are loaded with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, potassium and folate.

Fruit Salad Make-Ahead Tips

This salad can be made ahead of time, but I would hold on the apple. Just chop and add when you’re ready to serve, otherwise the apple will brown.

You could also toss the apple in apple or pineapple juice before adding to the salad to keep browning at bay. Check out these tips for keeping apples from browning for more.
