This is a cold fruit salad that kids seem to love....I think it is because of the color. If you wish, you can leave the Cool Whip out and you will have a completely different salad! We love it both ways.

This looked fun and different, so I decided to try it. When mixing it up, I starting having doubts about it because the grape flavor was so intense. But after chilling, the flavor and consistency was right. Loved the color---a pretty lavender color. This would be something pretty on the table at Easter.
