Recipe by Dianne Clewien

While preparing dinner for my family one night I thought a fruit salad would be a nice touch. But the only fruit I had on hand was fruit cocktail and mandarin orange slices. After draining the fruit I had to come up with a dressing for it. I combined parts of 2 recipes I found in Southern Living Cookbook and adapted them with some of my own additions until I had the taste and consistency that I thought it should be.

  1. Drain and reserve the juice from the fruit cocktail and mandarin orange slices, set aside.
