A simple recipe for strawberry banana salad is to mix chopped strawberries with sugar, and then add banana slices. To make four to six servings, use a pound of strawberries, a quarter cup of sugar and three large bananas, according to a recipe from GoodnessGracious.com. This salad is best served fresh.
Wash and hull the strawberries, and then cut them into quarters. In a large salad bowl, mix the sugar with the strawberries. Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes to form thick syrup.
Slice the bananas, and pour fresh orange juice evenly over them to prevent browning. Drain off excess orange juice to avoid its tangy flavor in the salad. Stir the banana slices into the salad bowl, coating them evenly with the strawberry syrup.
Let the salad sit for twenty to thirty minutes before serving, allowing the juices to blend more richly. Serve the strawberry banana salad as a dessert or snack. Other suggestions for serving the salad are as an ice cream or cake topping and with jell-o.
You may also use drained pineapple pieces or other fruits of your choice in the salad. Whipped cream or dried coconut can be sprinkled on the strawberry banana salad as toppings.
