This is a great fruit salad and kids love it. I have also tried using fruit cocktail instead and came out really well. My favorite part of this recipe is its too easy to make.

This is the first fruit salad my picky 4 year-old would eat. It is really good after a heavy meal. It is very easy quick and easy to make.

What a great idea for fruit salad! I used oatmeal cookies instead of the chocolate striped ones and all the kids loved it! Thanks!

My family and I have been making this for years. We have never had it with pineapple but will have to try it that way too.

I, too, have been making this for several years, but it's so delicious, I just had to talk it up!!! This salad is easy to prepare, versatile, and tastes absolutely amazing (and what a kid pleaser!)! You can follow the recipe exactly and get tremendous results, but you can also experiment a little bit with the fruit as well. My husband has an allergy to mandarin oranges, so ever since I started making it for him, I've substituted the can of mandarin oranges for an 11 ounce can of peach chunks. It's just outstanding that way too! Someday, I'd like to try all 3 together (since the mandarin oranges really do add something extra to it, it'll just have to be an occassion where I can steer the hubby toward other dishes!), with slightly smaller portions of each. Mmm...! I also find it very pretty in appearance and that it adds a nice texture to add 2-4 more crushed cookies on top of the salad after chilling and right before serving. To sum it up, thank you for posting this wonderful recipe!

I've been making this for quite a while and finally decided I need to review it. Great for a hog roast, family dinners, picnics. Very easy to make (great for those busy school nights!). Thanks for sharing!
