Regina’s Grandmother’s Fruit Salad


  • 6 navel oranges peeled & sliced thin
  • 1 & 1/4 pounds red seedless grapes halved
  • 1 20 oz can of chunk pineapple drained
  • 1 16 oz bag of frozen whole strawberries – almost thawed
  • 3 or 4 bananas. sliced
  • Sugar


  • Layer the oranges in a flat container, giving each layer a nice heavy coating of sugar
  • Layer the halved grapes in a separate container, sugaring each layer heavily
  • Let them sit out at room temperature for several hours to get those juices flowing. Stir occasionally. Regina says,”I usually prepare mine the night before, and after they have set out awhile, I put them in the refrigerator overnight until I am ready for them“.
  • Combine the oranges & grapes – then mix in the drained pineapple chunks. Cover & put the mixture into the refrigerator for an hour for the flavors to meld.
  • Add the strawberries & sliced bananas shortly before serving.
