Magical Fruit Salad

Recipe Notes

  • 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.

Comment

I use one 6 oz. container of lowfat yogurt instead of the pudding.  It is a fresh changed and the Vanilla yogurt blends all the wonderful fruit flavors together without over powering them.  Delicious!

Fruit salad is my favorite brunch dish which I never get bored of. But I want to ask can I ask pomegranate seeds to this recepie of yours?

 

You can use any mix of fruit with this recipe which is great for using what you already have on hand.

Kids love this recipe. I let them choose which types of fruit is in season, and which canned fruit we will use!
