This is another simple but extremely tasty recipe from my Mom, who got it from her Mom (my grandmother), and she received it from her Mother (my great-grandmother). That's FOUR generations making this salad!!! If that isn't a sign of something good then I don't know what is!
Now each one of has made changes over the years making it uniquely our own but the basic recipe has been carried on for years and years.
My Mom, grandma, and great-grandmother have all called this salad 5 Cup Fruit Salad, because originally they used 1 cup of each ingredient. But my Mom and then I started changing things up and no longer do we use strictly 1 cup of each ingredient, so that title no longer seemed to fit this salad.
This creamy, sweet salad is perfect for brunches, served alongside ham, or with breakfast. I even like to throw on some granola for a tasty and different snack!
