This dish got its name because every time we had a church picnic, lunch or supper (eatin' meetin' as we so fondly call them) my mother was asked to bring this fruit salad. It is so easy, but the blend of ingredients is SO good!

Easy and delicious on pancakes! I drained the fruit cocktail. Since I had to use frozen strawberries, I added them at the last minute and my co-workers scarfed this salad down! I am sure that cantaloupe and fresh grapes would be lovely additions, too. Thanks, Sherrybeth. This is a recipe I will come back to time and time again.

I can't believe how heavenly this is! I thought it would be too sweet, but it was perfect. MIL and I give it two thumbs up. You could dress this up by serving in individual dessert bowls with a dollop of real whipped cream. Sheronbeth,Thank you for this wonderful addition to our fish fry!
