Festive Fruit Salad
One year I was asked to bring a fruit salad to a family Christmas dinner. I found several fruit salad recipes, but none seemed really special for the holidays. I devised this recipe and everyone loved it. After that, I became the "official fruit salad person" for all family get-togethers.
