"This was really good. I don't like pudding but it had less pudding texture because of the sour cream and orange juice. It was a hit with the group I made it for. Yummy!"

"This recipe is wonderful. This is the best fruit salad that I have ever tasted. It is very simple to make. I made it for Christmas a couple of years ago, and my family loved it. It has become a yearly tradition at our house."
