 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! -Gretchen Baudhuin, Palm Coast, Florida
