Aunt Shirley's "tropic-Tang" Fruit Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by RNurse Mom

This is a unique Fruit Salad that is wonderful to have during the summer. (Although, I also find myself craving this during the winter months too!) I always have requests to bring this to family functions and never have any left over. As a result, I always double this recipe when preparing it for family gatherings.

This recipe was awful!! It was so sweet - 3 tablespoons of Tang was way too much. My son ask me to research a Tang fruit salad. He enjoyed one at a reunion. THIS, he could not eat. It was wasted food - to the garbage disposal. Sorry just my opinion.
