Reviews for Sparkling Fruit Salad
"This is my go-to fruit salad recipe. The combination of fresh and canned fruit makes it a breeze to put together, and the juice and club soda (I've never made it with wine...always served at family meals) give it a little extra punch. It is much lighter tasting than other fruit salads with poppyseed-type dressing and more satisfying than just mixed fruit."
"I made this with Barefoot Moscato and it was absolutely delicious! Much better than the Over the Top Mac n Cheese I made to go with it."
"The amazing thing about this fruit salad is that it does stay fresh for a couple of days. I used the white grape juice, and club soda. And, was I imagining things? Or, did I actually feel the bubbles on my tongue as I ate the salad? Refreshing and delicious way to serve fruit and add just a touch of sweetness."
"Liked it a lot, but it's pretty liquidy."
"I made this for our family's get together on Christmas. I admit I was a little dubious as to how this would turn out, but it was fantastic. I used the white grape juice instead of the wine & with it combined with the club soda brought out the color of each piece of fruit brilliantly & each piece of fruit held it's shape--no wilting. And if there was enough left over for the next day, I'm sure it would maintain it's color & shape. But, if anyone makes this recipe, we will never know."
"This is a refreshing salad that is easy to make. I made it for breakfast along with Amish Baked Oatmeal and it was a huge hit."
