Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Creamy, tangy dressing over a refreshing combination of fruits makes this salad taste so good. Our guests especially enjoy the surprising orange flavor of the dressing. -Gayle Grigg, Phoenix, Arizona

    I made this for Thanksgiving and it was very good with one exception which is why I couldn't give it 5 stars - the sauce is way too soupy. I'm making it again for Christmas but will cut back on the milk so that it is a little firmer. Other than that everyone said it was very good and the flavors blended well with each other.

    I recall preparing this salad when it first came out in Taste of Home. I did not have the pineapple tidbits on hand. I'd used drained, crushed pineapple and a regular 15-oz. can of drained peach halves, sliced and 5 medium Navel oranges, peeled and cut into slices. I used1 cup sour cream. I'd kept the apples and bananas the same. I had added 1 cup slicedfresh strawberries. My tip: Add the berries and banana slices to salad just before serving so the fruit doesn't get mushy! ('ve had to keep that in mind when making a fresh fruit salad!) delowenstein

    This salad has become one of my most requested recipes! We have 6 children, & all of them asked me to make it for their First Communion & Confirmation celebrations, along with high school & college graduation parties. We frequently have it for Easter, 4th of July, Labor Day, & in the dead of winter when we need a reminder of the taste of summer! I've also used the "dressing" mixture alone for a quick dessert; it's so refreshing & light! A very healthy treat however you choose to use it!

    This is delicious, my family ask for this all the time. I have made it for years. It is easy to adapt to a diabetic or low fat diet, by using skim milk and sugar free pudding, light or fat free sour cream.
