This recipe brought back memories of going to grandma's for the holiday's as she always made the best fruit salad! It is now my oldest son's favorite holiday dessert and still mine. I hope you enjoy as much as we do We like to replace the cranberries with sliced bananas which I soak in the pineapple juice This is not my picture
