Have you ever bought marvelous-looking German potato salad, only to discover that it tastes like yesterday's rain? This is my mom's recipe, and it's been a staple in our family for years. The whipping cream makes it taste like no other. —Tracy Zettelmeier, Mukwonago, Wisconsin
"I can't believe how easy this pretty salad is to make," says Carolyn Tomatz of Jackson, Wisconsin. The colorful blend of bananas, pineapple, pears and peaches and grapes is tossed with a creamy pudding sauce. "People of all ages enjoy this dish," Carolyn notes.
Pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, strawberries and grapes are treated to a dressing of wine and sparkling club soda in this delightful salad. Serve in dessert dishes or set the whole bowl on the table for a fetching presentation.
This spicy fruit mixture is a breeze to make—just open the cans and empty them into the slow cooker. With its pretty color from cherry pie filling, this salad is nice around the holidays—or for any special occasion. —Barb Vande Voort, New Sharon, Iowa.
