"This was delicious! I was looking for a light, refreshing fruit salad that I could enjoy even when I don't have fresh fruit on hand. This filled that desire perfectly! I didn't have bananas, so obviously left them out, and I added about a cup of mini-marshmallows. My husband and 4 boys all loved it and between the 6 of us, we finished off the whole thing in one meal!"
