Holiday Fruit Salad (Aka Green Stuff)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by swissms

We always make this for Thanksgiving and is a must have holiday menu item. You can substitute a container of Cool Whip for the freshly whipped cream. You could try other Jell-o flavors, but we are traditionalists and stick with lime. Some family members enjoy the addition of chopped pecans but I prefer without.

Made this for a holiday potluck we attended & it was a big hit, probably for the nostalgia as much as anything ~ It certainly was for me! The only thing I changed was to add a bit more of both the pineapple & the grapes! I also left out the marshmallows, but then they were optional anyway! My mom used to make something similar to this during the holidays, & I thoroughly enjoyed it this time as much as I did way, way back then! Thanks so much for posting it!
