Recipe by Chef on the coast

My mom makes this tasty summer fruit salad. I like the fact that it makes a lot. A great addition to any potluck or picnic. It does take a couple days to prepare - but I believe it is worth the wait!

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. I have fond memories of my mom making this for the holidays when I was a child, so I was excited to try it out. Very flavorful and easy. . .and inexpensive. I remember my mom's having less pasta and more cool whip, so I will try that next time. Very nice though. . .thank you! Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap.
