Heavenly Hash Fruit Salad
By Marilyn Deacon sedonaspirit
This recipe is been passed down through 4 generations in our family via my mother's side, with some slight changes made over the years, due to the grocery products now available. For instance, the original recipe used whipped cream, but for convenience and lower calories, Cool Whip is now substituted.
This salad is always on the menu for Thanksgiving and Christmas at our house, and putting it together makes a wonderful family project that would allow children to help, too.
I would also like to mention that this salad is even better the next day, so it is delicious with the other leftovers from the holiday.
I hope your family loves this as much as mine does!
Now, when Marilyn says you need a big bowl, she means you need a BIG bowl! This salad makes enough to take to a very large gathering... but my guess it that it will still disappear in seconds flat.

Marilyn, thanks for this recipe. I clicked on it to see if it was different from mine. I've never added the extract, cinnamon, cloves, sugar or mayo though so am anxious to try it. Sounds like it would give some punch to my traditional recipe.

I also make this Heavenly Hash recipe, but only used the cool whip for the dressing. I will add the spices, sugar and extract next time. Thanks!!!
