How to make ahead and store

If you’re planning to prepare this fruit tray ahead of time, there’s a simple way to store it that’ll keep the fruit fresh and juicy.

After you make the vibrant fruits, cover the tray with plastic wrap. If storing for more than one day, then keep each type of fruit in a separate airtight container to ensure everything stays fresh and tasty. For the topping, it has to be made the same day and kept in the fridge until it’s time to serve.
