Creamy Fruit Bowl
THIS fruit salad is always on the menu for special occasions, since it can be served as a salad or dessert.
It's a traditional dish with our family, and it must be passed on to a new bride.
When one of us brings it to a gathering, we take a copy of the recipe along to share. Someone always requests it!
