    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does this salad keep?

    It's best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Note that the fruits may release juices and soften over time.

    Can I add nuts or seeds?

    Yes, adding nuts like almonds or seeds like chia can add a crunchy texture and extra nutrients.

    Is this salad suitable for people with diabetes?

    While it is a healthier option with natural sugars, it's always best to consult with a healthcare provider regarding individual dietary needs.

    Can I make this ahead of time?

    You can prepare the fruits and dressing separately and combine them just before serving to maintain freshness.
