Easy 'n Elegant Fruit Cocktail

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by lazy gourmet

This one is sooooooooo easy! Less than a half hour to make and it tastes yummy and presents beautifully. Have only tried this with fresh fruit, but would be interested in knowing how canned or frozen works as well. Being that I am not an overt fan of the typical "fruit cocktail", this one was really different and GOOD!

As easy and elegant as you said it would be. Can't stand the canned stuff either but this is very good. Made for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes, ZWT5
