“To give my creamy fruit salad a zesty taste, I pour some coleslaw dressing into the whipping cream as I whip it,” says Roberta Morgan of Yakima, Washington. “Add just enough to satisfy your taste buds.”
My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me 40 years ago. She served this salad at all holiday meals, and the tradition has continued in our family. Preparation is so much easier today, thanks to red grapes without seeds! Another "updated" shortcut in the preparation is miniature marshmallows...cooks from the good old days know what "sticky fun" it was to snip regular-sized marshmallows!
While I was growing up on a farm in western Kansas, we always had lots of hungry men around during harvesttime. This salad is one we served often since it was easy to increase and we could prepare it ahead of time.
Mom made this zesty and fruity salad often, and it tasted so good paired with her hearty spare ribs. We kids couldn't wait to eat when we saw this salad appear on the table. — Ruth Ann Stelfox, Raymond, Alberta
