Reviews for Summer Fruit Salad
"Very good recipe! Loved the dressing but there was a lot of it. When I mixed all the dressing in, it was fruit soup. I will keep making the dressing but will only use a small portion of it."
"Very pretty delicious salad. Great healthy addition to summer cookouts."
"This is absolutely delicious! I didn't read the recipe through, and was making it to bring to a party that afternoon, so naturally, couldn't let it chill overnight! I think it chilled for 3 hours at the most, and it was still a hit! This is perfect for those hot summer days!"
"This is wonderful! Delicious dressing, and especially refreshing on those hot summer days..I will make this again and again!"
"This is wonderful! I didn't even let it sit overnight, but mixed it with the dressing and served it only a few hours later. Everyone loved it!"
