Company Fruit Salad Recipe

We first tried a 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

"I made this salad for a cookout and no one liked it. They thought I must have a mistake by putting mayonnaise in it. I put in less than called for, but it was still too much"

"I didn't have apples but I did have both yellow and red bartlett pears so I used them, and added blueberries as well. We didn't like the mandarin oranges with the different fruit mix so I removed them. I made the dressing lighter by using 0% mf yogurt to replace the sour cream and mayo. Then added 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. stevia. We all loved the outcome. Will be making this often! Thanks for the great recipe!"

"I made this recently, but I do not like mayo, so I used Greek vanilla yogurt instead--out standing. Great to take to a picnic or BBQ as it makes a huge bowl!!"

"Could you use vanilla yogurt instead of mayo? Some in family won't eat mayo."

"I made this fruit salad for a company holiday party and it turned out perfectly! It does require a lot of chopping, but the taste is definitely worth the effort. A few coworkers even asked for the recipe. The only change I made was I added blueberries. Other than that, I made it exactly as is and it turned out deliciously! I even made it the night before, but instead of mixing in the dressing, I waited until right before the party began. The fruit and dressing held fine. I will definitely use this recipe again and again!"

"The dressing is a delicious complement to the fruit. We've made this at every family holiday gathering since it was first published in Taste of Home Magazine several years ago. The bowl is always empty when we're done. Delicious."
