Ready In:


  • Fruit Salad

  • 8 ounces canned fruit (smallest size can, recommended pineapple, mandarin oranges, or pears)
  • 1 medium red apples or 1 medium green apple
  • 1 medium banana (See Note)
  • 12 cup seedless grapes
  • Strawberry Yogurt Dressing

  • 12 cup strawberry yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice


  • Pour the canned fruit, with its juice, into a serving bowl. Core the apple but do not peel it. Cut the apple into bite-size pieces and add the pieces to the bowl. Stir to coat the apples with the juice.
  • Slice the banana and add it to the bowl. Add the grapes, cutting them in half, if desired. Set the fruit aside, without stirring, until just before serving.
  • When you are ready to serve the salad, stir the fruit and serve it in small bowls. Spoon a little of the dressing on top of each bowl and pass the rest at the table.
  • NOTE: If you are waiting a while to serve the salad, don't peel, slice, or add the banana until right before serving. The banana can hold in the salad for only about 10 minutes before turning brown and mushy.
  • Strawberry Yogurt Dressing: Pour the yogurt into a small mixing bowl. Add the orange zest (if using) and the orange juice. Stir until well combined. Spoon over fruit salad or refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve, up to 24 hours.

<p>Square Meals Make Round People - Author Unknown <br /><br />Do It With Love---It Will Taste Better - Author Unknown <br /><br />I joined zaar in 2002 but I really didn't use it much on until 2006 after my computer crashed and I lost all my unsaved recipes. Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well. I really love collecting different cookbooks. I have over a 100 and growing! I collect mostly Taste Of Home &amp; community cookbooks. The minute I get a cookbook home I sit down and I read my cookbooks from front to back like novels. I work for the Elmira City School&nbsp;District and YWCA. I'm raising my&nbsp;8 yrs old newphew. I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own. I lost&nbsp;four of my very dear children (kitty's) Callie June 2007, Miss Kitty in March 2010, my dog Angel in December 2010, and my other cat Chase in September&nbsp;2011. I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons. I love the internet as there's so much to look at online even though you know where I spend most of my time! I enjoy going to yard sales and estate sales every spring - fall. I love gardening and have many different pretty flowers.</p> 8724441"
