orange cream fruit salad

This is a lick the spoon and bowl kind of recipe. The creamy orange sauce enhances the taste of the fruit. I serve this at our annual Neighborhood Christmas Eve Breakfast that meets at my home. This is a great salad to take to potlucks or use as a main salad with dinner. I like it as a snack with Ritz crackers. Just put a light coating on the fruit so as not to drown the flavor of the fruit itself.

With a hint of tang, this is a wonderful creamy fruit salad. The salad can be adapted to your taste buds with any of your favorite fruits. Adding concentrated orange juice makes this taste like the old-time push pops in a bowl. Serve as a salad or dessert.
