and cool, this salad is perfect for warm evening dinners.
Tropical Fruit Salad is a refreshing addition to any menu. Glenn says that he
can’t tell that it has sour cream in it and I agree. It tastes creamy and light. It takes me right back to pot luck
dinners and family suppers from my childhood. It has never failed to please a group and someone always asks for the
recipe, so here ya go!
It is very easy to double the recipe if you are expecting a crowd or just want to
have plenty of leftovers. The whole salad is easily made in less than 15 minutes.
Tropical Fruit Salad should be made at least a couple of hours before you plan to
serve it. Place it in the refrigerator to allow it to chill and the flavors to blend together. You can use the
"lite" types of canned fruit and sour cream to make it healthier without sacrificing the flavor. Don't throw out
the juice the fruit is packed in. Use the juice to marinate chicken breasts, pork chops or other meat, or use it in
a smoothie. Just don't waste it! As always with fresh fruit, wash off the grapes before using them.
Since Tropical Fruit Salad has dairy in it, please make sure it stays cool so
the salad doesn't go bad if you plan to take this to a picnic or other outdoor gathering. It will last for several
days in the refrigerator.
