Why This Thanksgiving Fruit Salad Recipe is Special

As a little girl, it was my job to help whip the heavy cream and pour the fruit in the bowl. I remember watching the heavy cream turn from a milky liquid into beautiful, stiff peaks.

Now I get to pass that tradition on to my own boys. They are experts at turning on the stand mixer and adding in the sugar. (And also licking the whisks clean.)

If you do make this Thanksgiving fruit salad recipe this year, be sure it’s the last dish you make. You want the bananas and apples to look fresh and ripe—squeeze a tiny dash of lemon juice onto the fruit before mixing it into the bowl.
