Easy Fruit Salad Recipe with Marshmallows
How Do You Make a Simple Fruit Salad?
It’s actually so easy to make a delicious fresh fruit salad! You’ll just…
- Make and Chill your fruit salad dressing
- Wash and Cut fruit
- Stir dressing into salad
- Chill fruit salad in refrigerator
- Add sliced bananas and mini marshmallows just before serving, and stir one more time.
See? I told you it was EASY!
What is a Fruit Salad Made Of?
There are several different fruits you can use when making a fresh fruit salad, but here is my favorite flavor combination…
- Noble Juicy Crunch Tangerines
- Gala Apples
- Sweet Citrus Dressing
- Mini Marshmallows
Easy Fruit Salad Recipe with Marshmallows
- 2 tbsp. Water
- 2 tbsp. Granulated Sugar
- 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
- 2 tbsp. Orange Juice
- 2 Noble Juicy Crunch Tangerines
- 2 Gala Apples
- 2 Pears
- 1 Banana
- 1 1/2 cups Mini Marshmallows
- To make the citrus dressing, bring water and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.
- Once water begins to boil, immediately reduce heat to low, and pour in orange juice and lemon juice. Allow to simmer for a couple of minutes, then transfer citrus dressing to the refrigerator to cool.
- While your citrus dressing is cooling in the refrigerator, peel and separate tangerines, core and cut your pears, and core and cut your apples.
- Add tangerines, pears, and apples to medium bowl, and pour citrus dressing over fruit. Stir with wooden spoon, then cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 2+ hours so flavors can marinate together.
- When ready to serve, remove fruit salad from refrigerator, add sliced banana and mini marshmallows, gently stir again, and ENJOY!
So wasn’t that easy? Nothing beats a delicious fresh fruit salad! I’m giving you a fair warning though… it will disappear FAST! 🙂
Where Do The Best Tangerines Come From?
When it comes to tangerines, I’ve personally found that the grove fresh Juicy Crunch Tangerines from Noble Citrus top the charts!
So what’s so special about Noble Juicy Crunch tangerines? Well… not only are they ridiculously juicy, but they are truly the sweetest tangerine I’ve ever tasted! Trust me… you’ll be seeing the light at the end of the Winter tunnel with every crunchy, juicy bite! In technical terms… Noble Juicy Crunch has the highest Brix (natural sugar solids measure) of any full-size tangerine: 17 Brix vs. 10 – 12 in most other high end tangerines.
I also love that they come from a family farm started back in 1926 in sunny Florida. After a four decade breeding program, 1,600 seedling grafts, waiting five more years for each tree to mature and become a full fruit-bearing tree, the Noble Juicy Crunch tangerine was born and has become the crown jewel of the farm.
It took patience and a lot of time to develop these easy-to-peel tangerines bursting with flavor. When you take your first bite you’ll know why they were so worth the wait!
Noble Citrus is all about old fashioned quality, and generation after generation has carried on their delicious traditions while also developing incredible new varieties, so you know they’re going to be good!

My kiddies already love fruit salad – but throw some mini marshmallows in and they won’t be able to get enough! This looks terrific Heidi!
Aww… thank you so much, Katherine! And I agree… those mini marshmallows are a must! 🙂
Thanks so much, Christine!
This sounds yummy! I suppose with all the health fruits, it almost negates the unhealthy marshmallows! 🙂 Nectarines are delicious. We will have to look for Nobel Juicy Crunch!
Haha… yes, the marshmallows will get cancelled out here. 🙂 You will love the Noble Juicy Crunch tangerines too, Val – they’re so sweet and juicy!
