This Winter time fruit salad has been in our family a long, long time. It is served on every special occasion due to demand. This includes 04th of July and Easter, so it has become the year round favorite mixed fruit dish. It is so versatile, you can add most any fruit to it and it will still be delicious.

There are two secrets to making this dish a success---
1) 1/4 cup dry sherry and

How to Make Delicious Fruit Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. I also enjoy adding a cup of fresh blueberries to this fruit salad for added color because your strawberries tend to turn some of the fruit reddish in hue. So what? You will be praised for such a delicious fruit salad dish. (Although this is versatile in that you may add most any fruit to this dish, I do not recommend adding coconut. It's simply too chewy for this salad. Also, I have never tried adding pecans, but it may be ok. Cool Whip in the squirt can is beautiful atop this salad.

    You will not go wrong serving this dish at your next big family function.

    Enjoy!
