This yummy and refreshing salad goes well with a breakfast or brunch. It is also a big hit at pot lucks! Most of the preparation is done the day before serving.

This pineapple cream cheese dressing is simply wonderful! It's tasty on its own... and even better when coupled with the fresh fruit. A surefire crowd-pleaser! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
