"We love this salad. People are always asking for this recipe when I make it for a get-together. If I don't have all the fruit on hand I just add what I have, good with just strawberries or just blueberries."

"This is a great salad; I make it often. The dressing is very tasty and so easy. It's a favorite of ours, including our 8 year old grandson. I often use other greens as well."
