Mom's out of This World Salad / Aka Green Stuff

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JillQH

This recipe was orginally named "Green Stuff" (as no one knew the real name) until it was later found to be named "Out of this World Salad" in some instance.

Delicious, even without the pecans and Cool Whip. This is a fruit salad that I saw regularly in the 70's and 80's. If you leave out the Cool Whip, it's not as creamy, but I don't think it's quite as sweet either, and I liked that. Anyway, this is the old tried and true recipe from my memories. Thanks for posting.
