Top 3 Quick Fruit Salad Recipes

Any takers on the origin of this fruit salad recipe? It frequently earns a “spot” among the delicious desserts at our Ukrainian church potlucks.

This fruit salad is very popular and usually sold out. You can “plant” any of your favorite fruits in this, and did I mention that it’s simple? Fruit that can be combined with either fresh or frozen fruit is “perfect” for any season. Apples, bananas, grapes, and other “cheaper fruit” work best to “bulk up” the finished product. ).

The recipe is simple to multiply by two or three for a “party” (even though all that happens is that it ends up in your fridge). I apologize if my ridiculous quotes “got to you,” but I couldn’t help it.
