  • This salad is best if eaten as soon as it is ready.
  • Use any fruit, such as apples, bananas, berries, grapes, oranges or pineapple. Try a mixture.
  • Young children can choke on whole grapes; cut grapes in half or smaller to reduce the chance of choking.
  • No fresh milk? Mix 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons dry milk powder with enough cold water to make 1 3/4 cups of milk.
