I have made this salad several times now and it is always a big hit. My in-laws have started requesting it everytime I go over there for a bbq and it won me $50 at a company cookoff! I have always doubled the topping/cream part though (used two small yogurts, one 8oz block cream cheese, and either one large tub or two smaller tubs of Extra Creamy Cool Whip)and used lime juice instead of lemon. I wouldn't suggest making it a day ahead though or all the juice from the fruit goes to the bottom of the bowl and it looks not so appetizing. I found that cutting up all the fruit and leaving it to drain in a collander in the fridge overnight or for a few hours works best. I also made the topping the night before when I cut up the fruit so it was really easy to throw it together when it was time to eat. Great salad and very easy to make!

Fantastic. This does not get any better or easier to prepare. I only had the small packages of yogurt in strawberry, blueberry and peach flavours, so I used all three and it was delicious. I used just blueberries and strawberries. This makes a wonderful light dessert for the summer. Thanks for the recipe

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! This is such a great dessert/dish, I wish I could give it more stars. It's a 10 star for sure. Simple, easy to make and nice and light. I made extra topping and will use it for a fruit dip for breakfast. I used Strawberries, bananas, red grapes, mandarin orange and kiwi. I also used field berry yogurt as that was what I had on hand. Thanks for a keeper!
