Fruit Salad tip...

Here I have apple, strawberry, grapes and banana.  I will often add green grapes instead and kiwi and blueberries but did not have them on hand today.  To keep the apple and banana from turning brown I add an acid.  Lemon tends to be too tart and I don't often have orange or grapefruit to use.  

 I will keep cans of pineapple on hand to use in such an instance and the pineapple juice does nicely to keep the brown away plus the pineapple is a nice addition to the salad.  It also gives a little shine to the salad.  If you want even a little more shine you can sprinkle some powdered sugar over the top and stir it in for a nice sheen.
