  • 7 or so large bananas
  • Lemon juice


  • Hull and halve 29 large strawberries and set them aside.

  • Cut 58 banana slices, 3/4-inch-thick, into a bowl. Sprinkle on lemon juice and toss the slices gently with a rubber spatula to keep them from browning.
  • Assemble the banana slices in rows and top each slice with a strawberry half.
