"I make this whenever there's a summer get together. I love it as it but I am looking forward to trying some of the variations I see here. I'll be taking this to a shower this weekend."

"I have made this type of fruit salad for several years and it is WONDERFUL! Some of the variations that have always worked for me - I slice bananas, cover them with the juice from the pineapple chunks so they keep, and add a can of fruit cocktail. I've also used instant lemon pudding which gives it a little pizzazz!

This is quick and easy and is always one of the first things to go!!!"

"My family loves this, but I use lemon pudding and add some grapes - it's always requested when we have brunch."

"I cut calories and sugar by using sugar free jello. Also, I divide by 4 to make just the right amount to feed my family of 7 with a little leftover for an extra treat."
