Frozen Fruit Salad
"I use this recipe to add a healthy twist to brown-bag lunches," reports Virginia Powell of Eureka, Kansas. "I'm always in a hurry in the morning, so having a ready-made salad is a great help."
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + freezing
- 1 can (16 ounces) apricot halves, drained
- 1 container (16 ounces) frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed and drained
- 3 medium bananas, sliced
- 3/4 cup pineapple tidbits
