"This spicy fruit mixture is a breeze to make - just open the cans and empty them into the slow cooker," says Barb Vande Voort of New Sharon, Iowa. "With its pretty color from cherry pie filling, this salad is nice around the holidays...or for any special occasion."

Beautiful salad. I AM making it for tomorrow night's New Year Eve party. I throw in cinnamon hots for more of a cinnamon flavor. Also adds more vibrant color.

I made this for fellow bridge players and they all thought it was perfect for the cold day we had. I served it with pound cake.

This is a recipe my family does like, and will be making again. It's a keeper, for sure.

MY REVIEW

This makes an interesting side dish...not the usual side. It is a nice compliment to other sides and the main meat dish. I have used a recipe similar to this, but doctored up a bit. For a richer (but less healthy version) add butter. Use 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter or one stick, 1T corn starch and if you feel daring, 1 teaspoon curry. Mash this together and spoon over drained fruit in a crock pot. You could also just add 1 t. curry to above recipe to spice it up and keep it healthy. This dish is an acquired taste....you are either a fan of it or you are not. Unfortunately, this is just not a hit with my family, even when we use butter and curry!
