I am thrilled that other people are calling this the same thing that my mom has named it! She makes this every Christmas and Thanksgiving and when she is not able to I make it for her. It always disappears! So simple yet so tasty! I think I will add the pecans like one other person added.. Love love love pecans!!!!!Reply
This recipe has been a tradition for all Christmas dinners in our family for years. My aunt introduced this recipe to the family after she and my uncle were married. She is gone now, but the tradition continues. I remember making this for a Thanksgiving gathering with some friends (before she told me the recipe again and had we write it down) and I couldn't remember if there were 5 ingredients or 7, so I just put things into a bowl. I ended up with the 5 original ingredients, as well as 1 cup of chopped pecans and 1 cup of well-drained fruit cocktail. Everyone loved it, so sometimes I make it that way for occasions here at home or with friends. But I always make it the traditional way when we go home for Christmas.Reply
This is a must have fruit salad at all of our holiday dinners. I've tried variations of this recipe but always come back to the original. It could fill the bill as a fruit salad or dessert, you choose, awesome either way. As a side note, I have made this fruit dish using low fat and no fat sour cream with success. It's also very pretty using the colored mini marshmellows. Thanks Ms. Diggy for posting a favorite.Reply
