A family favorite and a fond memory from my childhood.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

This is one of several dishes I took to a neighborhood get-together, & it was definitely a big hit! We love pasta salads & fruit salads, so a combo of the two was an intriguing & enjoyable adventure for me! Absolutely loved putting this one together, & will certainly be doing it again & again! A keeper, for sure! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement recipe tag]
