that is a hella lot of fruit salad. only things i can think are: i'd assume 1/2 cup (4oz) per kid. a good basic fruit salad is just watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, and pinneapple, maybe strawberries if you want (and $$ allows!), but i'm sure you know that. skip bananas, they turn brown and mushy pretty fast. you can sprinkle a little basil on it if you wanna get fancy, or maybe you could find some giant tubs of cheapo yogurt for dipping??

good luck dude, 50 kids is alot! have fun though, hope it goes well. :steve:

lets you adjust the serving amount and will alter the recipe for you...like, look next to "serves six" right here on this one, and change it to "serve 50", it will give you an idea of how much to make.

I make the world's best fruit salad with fresh ground nutmeg, lime juice and honey/sugar. Really nice combo. Good luck! Lime juice helps keep things from browning, as does lemon juice.
