This is the recipe that my aunt used to make and I finally found it! I love this fruit salad - it is so yummy. I couldn't squeeze out enough pineapple juice to get 1 cup but after putting the pineapple in the bowl I realized there was much more that didn't come out. Next time I will use a strainer to get the juice I need. Other than that, it was easy to make and tasted wonderful. Thanks!
This was delicious! I thought about using chunk pineapple next time to make it a chunkier salad, but either way...it is terrific.
This is a wonderful dish,it deserves many more stars!I've made it twice now,the whole family loves it.I didn't put in bannas as I don't like them.THANKS,lINDA
