This was such a different salad, but very good. I used frozen fruit, but would recommend using fresh. The frozen blueberries & peaches worked okay, I thawed & drained them pretty good before layering in the bowl. But the thawed strawberries, I couldn't seem to drain enough, plus they were soggy. This was totally my fault, so I still give it 5 stars because it was delicious just the same.<br/>Made for Spring PAC 2014

This salad is the perfect light finish to any meal. I did everything as directed but next time I may omit the grapes and simply add in more berries and peaches. The lemon flavoured cream went wonderfully with the sweetness of the fruit. Also, to cut down on the fat, I replaced the whipping cream with fat free plain yogourt. That worked very well and I will do it again when I repeat this recipe.
