Layered Fresh Fruit Salad

People always pass on compliments when I take this salad to covered-dish suppers. It's nice on a hot day...with a winter meal...or as a dessert! We live on a small farm where my garden gives me lots of possibilities for fresh food. —Page Alexander, Baldwin City, Kansas

    I prepared this delicious salad for a pot luck. I made only a few changes. I omitted the kiwi fruit as I could not find any and substituted blueberries for the grapefruit. It was delicious and a hit at the pot luck. It is very juicy so only refrigerate a few hours before serving as it could get soggy. Volunteer Field Editor

    I've made this salad many times and people rave about it. My adult children request I bring it to family gatherings. I usually omit the grapefruit but put fresh blackberries on top of it. They really give it an elegant look.
