The savory spices added here make this zesty, flavorful fruit salad perfect for a first course.
The fruit that is not susceptible to discoloring can be prepped a day in advance and refrigerated in separate resealable plastic food storage bags. Add the bananas and apples just before serving.
Once the fruit is dressed, it should be served immediately.
