Strawberry Banana Salad is one of those luscious dishes that is perfect for any occasion! It is sweet, fluffy and creamy, making it a great option for dessert but it also serves well as a side dish. I don’t know about you, but I always go for the fruit salad at a picnic or party! We’ve always had Ambrosia Salad with both picnics and turkey dinner but this is our new favorite!

This recipe starts with mashed ripe bananas. It is important to add the lemon to this recipe to keep your bananas from turning brown, plus the tangy juice adds a great flavor dimension to complement the natural sweetness of the fruit!  We add in a combination of crushed pineapple and fresh strawberries but any berry works great in this recipe including raspberries, blackberries or blueberries!

A dessert salad is something that you can’t go wrong with when you are feeding a crowd of hungry guests! While it might not be a leafy green salad, it is packed with Greek yogurt and nutritious fruits, making this one sweet you can savor without all of the guilt!

This recipe does call for fresh lemon juice and in this case fresh is definitely best!  If you can’t get fresh you can substitute 1 tablespoon bottled lemon juice.

You can make this dish a few hours ahead of time and leftovers (if you’re lucky enough to have any) will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days!
