I love practically any type of fruit, so this quick and easy salad looks delicious. Perfect for a summer picnic or backyard BBQ!

This quick and easy fruit salad recipe is the best! I make this everyday for my snacks and it really tastes great when cold. I sometimes add cheese or mango on it to make it a bit much sweeter. And try a low-fat/ non-fat whip because fruits are sweet already.

It is hot here in South Africa at Christmas time and there's lots of fruit around and in season. We also east a lot at this time of the year and I went looking for something light. This recipe looks very interesting and I think I'm going to make it. I have all of the ingredients already in my store cupboard which helps! I never thought of mixing cool whip (here we call it Orley Whip) with pudding powder. I can't wait to try this and see what it tastes like.

I have made this for years. It is requested at every occasion. I subsitute Jello powder for the pudding powder for variety. I use yellow with mandarin oranges and pineapple. And one of the reds for the fruit cocktail. When I want to dress it up a little, I add 1 small container of sour cream and 1 small container of cottage to the mix. Thank you for your recipe. It brought many memories back.

This is BEST made with Fresh pineapple, mandarin oranges, halved green grapes, fresh or canned cherries and bananas added just before serving. As stated, Everyone loves it!
