A few weeks ago my friend Sherra was describing this amazing salad she had just had at Paradise Bakery. Since Sherra typically doesn’t eat anything green I figured it must be a really good salad if she liked it!
After she described it I had to google it and find a recipe for it. She was right – it is great.
It is a perfect summer salad because it incorporates all kinds of yummy fruit – some canned and some fresh. Not only is it yummy, it is so pretty with all the different colored fruits!
You could easily adapt it to whatever was in season and in the off-season just use canned fruit.
Just customize it according to whatever fruit you have on hand. I used Kraft Poppyseed Dressing.
