We first tried a cream cheese fruit salad like this at a local deli. Since I couldn't get that recipe, I started mixing up different dressings until I hit on this one. Now I make this refreshing delightful salad for every picnic and get-to-gether. It can be a snack, side dish or dessert. —Connie Osterhout, Napoleon, Ohio

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Experiment with different fruit-and-nut flavor combinations in your fruit salads, such as peaches and pecans; apples and walnuts; cherries and almonds; or pineapple and macadamia nuts.
  • When making a fruit salad, toss the juice from a small can of pineapple into the bowl. The juice keeps the other fruit from browning, and bits of pineapple in the salad give it a tropical zing.
