Reviews for Orange Cream Fruit Salad
"I made this for Thanksgiving and it was very good with one exception which is why I couldn't give it 5 stars - the sauce is way too soupy. I'm making it again for Christmas but will cut back on the milk so that it is a little firmer. Other than that everyone said it was very good and the flavors blended well with each other."
"I recall preparing this salad when it first came out in Taste of Home. I did not have the pineapple tidbits on hand. I'd used drained, crushed pineapple and a regular 15-oz. can of drained peach halves, sliced and 5 medium Navel oranges, peeled and cut into slices. I used1 cup sour cream. I'd kept the apples and bananas the same. I had added 1 cup slicedfresh strawberries. My tip: Add the berries and banana slices to salad just before serving so the fruit doesn't get mushy! ('ve had to keep that in mind when making a fresh fruit salad!) delowenstein"
"This salad has become one of my most requested recipes! We have 6 children, & all of them asked me to make it for their First Communion & Confirmation celebrations, along with high school & college graduation parties. We frequently have it for Easter, 4th of July, Labor Day, & in the dead of winter when we need a reminder of the taste of summer! I've also used the "dressing" mixture alone for a quick dessert; it's so refreshing & light! A very healthy treat however you choose to use it!"
"This was good and easy"
"This is an terrific recipe. I've made it for holiday gatherings many times."
"This is delicious, my family ask for this all the time. I have made it for years. It is easy to adapt to a diabetic or low fat diet, by using skim milk and sugar free pudding, light or fat free sour cream."
"This is the yummiest salad......number one on my list when it comes to fruit salads."
"Wonderful flavor, quick and easy. I'm going to add it to my list of favorites for family gathering. Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
"I have made this for every holiday since my Friend gave me the recipe a few years back. It is ALWAYS a BIG hit and I have passed this along many times since! Just be sure your apple is tart and the bananas are very firm.I have also added Blueberries and put red Raspberries on top!"
"My husband has decided that this is our "official" fruit salad from now on. It is very good and the orange juice really adds a refreshing tang. I do think it could use a little more fruit and I ended up adding twice the amount of peaches."
"I am going to try this for easter dinner. Sounds good for the spring."
