Kids in the Kitchen: Easter Fruit Salad

This is a quick salad to put together as a great side dish for your Easter table whether for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.  You don't need to have a kid to make it, either.  If you do though, it's a great recipe for kids to help make . Younger kids can use a plastic knife to cut the fruit and stir it all together making it "all by themselves" with minimal supervision.  Older kids can do it all on their own and get back to nibbling at their Easter basket contents. It's called "Easter Fruit Salad" because of the symbolism of the ingredients. As you are making the salad you can be reminding your kids about the significance of each ingredient as it is added.

  • Strawberries or Red Grapes: Red for the blood Jesus shed dying for our sins on Good Friday
  • Marshmallows: White for the empty tomb found on Good Saturday
  • Green Grapes: New life in the Resurrection on Easter 
  • Lemon Yogurt: Combines everything and is sour and sweet like our sorrow and joy experienced during Lent and Easter. 


1 lb. strawberries or red grapes, sliced
2 cups marshmallows
2 cups green grapes, halved
6 oz. lemon yogurt


Combine all ingredients in a pretty serving bowl. Cover and chill for 24 hours before serving.
