Fruit & Cream Layered Salad Recipe

Fruit & Cream Layered Salad Recipe

Being from the South, I love salads, especially fruit salads. I also try to cook healthier foods, since everyone is trying to watch what they eat. I found a similar recipe to this one a few years ago and have revised it to make it a lot healthier. April Lane - Greeneville, TN
