This is the best fruit salad and a requested by my daughter every holiday. The freshness just pops out with every bite and the creaminess of the cheese are great combinations.I take it one step further because I put some on my pecan pie. Hope you enjoy a family tradition that has been handed down through 50 years of get togethers.
