Vanilla Yogurt Ambrosia

This simple fruit salad is so yummy. I have served it many times, and it's always one of the first dishes to go. Fat-free vanilla yogurt also works well as the dressing. —Sherry Hulsman of Louisville, Kentucky

    So easy and so good. My husband, who never gives me suggestions on what to make, asked me for this yesterday. He remembered it from many years ago.

    I really like this salad and have made it numerous times. It makes me feel like I'm on a tropical island! For even more coconut taste you can substitute pina colada yogurt. Other good choices would also be lemon or orange cream.

    I made this for my club's picnic, and was asked for the recipe. It's so easy to make, and will definitely make it often.

    This was my first time making this salad.  I used marishino cherries instead of grapes. The result was delicious!  My two young sons keep asking for more.  I will definitely make this again!
