Fruit Salad for A Summer Treat
Enjoy Delicious Fruit Salad In The Summertime
I enjoyed this Fruit Salad Recipe back in the 1970s when I was teaching at Pendleton Elementary School. I found out that it was the standard favorite dish for the teachers during the Teacher Appreciation Celebration. Since that time I have made this wonderful Fruit Salad every summer and shared it with many friends. I recently made this when my cousin came for a visit and my 9 year old grandson helped me prepare it. He had his own ideas of how it should be layered and how the topping was to be applied. Actually, his method was probably better and it sure did taste great!
This is a simple recipe that my whole family enjoys. I hope you will like it, too!
My Grandson's Fruit Salad
Serve Fruit Salad Anytime of the Day
This fruit salad can be served anytime as an afternoon treat, dessert, or nighttime snack. It is also great to take to a covered dish event and is always a big hit.
Of course, the summer is the ideal time for this salad so that your fruit is fresh. I have used frozen peaches and frozen blueberries when I could not find the fresh ones.
No matter when I eat it, I always enjoy it. Yummy! It makes my mouth water to even think about it.

This Fruit Salad is delicious
You can layer the fruit or mix it. Either way is fine. It is pretty to layer and to make sure they are along the sides of the bowl or glass. I usually try to layer starting with the sliced peaches, then strawberries, blueberries and save the white grapes for last. I slice the grapes down the middle long ways.The topping will need to be mixed with a mixer until smooth. My grandson put this topping on. We topped with chopped pecans and a few blueberries.It is best to make the Fruit Salad ahead of time, cover and place in the refrigerator. The topping will gradually seep into all the fruit which not only looks pretty but distributes the taste.
One year I purchased several plastic fun looking parfait glasses and filled them with this Fruit Salad. I then took them around to friends as a surprise. It was fun. I have also given the individual Fruit Salads to friends who were in the hospital or recuperating from surgery. Now, that was a big hit.
So, this is a fun one for your family or to share with friends! Enjoy!
