SIMPLE and my kids' favorite. I made a different fruit salad one year and my youngest son, Joe, had a fit. "Mom, this is not what I asked for!" Oops, mom was in deep poo poo!!
GRANDMA'S FRUIT SALAD

1Drain all canned fruit very well. Add all fruits - except bananas - into a large bowl. (Save the bananas 'til serving time.)
