50 creative (and surprisingly varied) fruit salad recipes

According to the CDC, only 12% of American adults get enough servings of fruits each day. At first pass, this may seem like a trivial thing to worry about, but people who don’t meet the suggested serving size (which is 1.5 cups for women and 2 cups for men) have an increased risk of illnesses like cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. 

Getting your fruit in doesn’t have to be as boring as chomping on another apple or struggling to peel another orange, however. Fruit salads are an excellent (and easily portable!) way to consume all 1.5-2 cups. To that end, Stacker compiled a list of Fruit salad recipes from Allrecipes. From basic to deluxe, these salads will add a sweet note to any day.
