Great Recipe. My mom made the identical one for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

This is a very easy and delicious fruit salad. I add 1 lg can of fruit cocktail and 1 cup of seedless green grapes to mine. This has been one of my favorites since I was a kid.

My Mom would sometimes use fruit cocktail too! :)

Our family has a recipe very similar to this, but we also put in sliced red grapes and pecan halves. We have always called it 5-Cup salad. The best!
