My great-aunt gave me the recipe for this rich, fruity salad, which goes especially well with a ham dinner. Before I even tasted it, I knew it would be good. I've never walked away from her kitchen disappointed. —Carolyn Shepherd, O'Neill, Nebraska

"This is a wonderful recipe! I always make it different though, without the spaghetti. I use additional fruit, instead. And I don't make it the night before. It turns out perfect every time."
