Recipe by Trisha W

This yummy salad has fruit and vegetables both in it and is topped with a delicious sour cream/cream cheese mixture with cinnamon in it. Make ahead so it can set and pull it out at meal time.

I liked this a lot. My kids did not. I think it would be better if the carrots were shredded. It was very sweet but the topping helped cut through that. Good luck in the contest!
