I make this frozen dish frequently as an afternoon snack for teenaagers. I now add very little whipped topping. It is very sweet on its own and reminds the boys more of a snack then a salad. Makes a great 'refresher' after a hot afternoon of yard work!!

What a great dessert! Because I wanted to use it as a salad, I left out the sugar. Still a bit sweet for what I want in a salad. Next time I'll try replacing some of the whipped topping with sour cream or Greek yogurt. Might give is just the bite I prefer for a salad. But for a dessert, it's quite marvelous just the way it is!

My family and I really enjoyed this fruit salad like dessert. I am probably going to try it without freezing next time (more like a regular fruit salad) because I think that it would be very good that way too!

This is an absolutely marvelous dessert served partially frozen or fresh from the fridge. It's a keeper recipe I will make often-great for summer or winter holidays.

This has become one of our favorites! I never add the sugar but sometimes add a sprinkle of sugar free jello if needed.
