Fruit & Cream Layered Salad

Being from the South, I love salads, especially fruit salads. I also try to cook healthier foods, since everyone is trying to watch what they eat. I found a similar recipe to this one a few years ago and have revised it to make it a lot healthier. —April Lane, Greeneville, TN

    I took this to a summer garden party and it was a big hit.I only put the cream in the seconed layer...bringing the rest with me so others could add more if they choose to. The topping ended up also being used on another person's cobbler dish (it was yummy).Peaches were not in season so I used canned and they were good.

    Excellent! I am always asked for the recipe whenever I serve this. I have changed it slightly, adding marionberries, raspberries and blackberries. Still delicious!
