This Salad...

My "Vegan Fruit Salad" is an adaptation of the recipe "Watergate Salad." It is Vegan because there are no animal or dairy products used in this recipe.

Instead of using Dole canned pineapple chunks we use Dole Tropical Fruit Salad which has a small amount of pineapple chunks, but also contains papaya, and guava chunks.

Vegan Fruit Salad will become a fast family favorite. Even small picky children will love it!

Make this salad for special occasions, parties, or just plain dessert.

TIP: Double this recipe - it never lasts a day at our house!

Here's A Time Saving Tip

If you want your Vegan Fruit Salad to last longer than one day, I suggest doubling the recipe.

Also, I prefer this salad frozen to refrigerated; it makes a nice refreshing snack or pick-me-up.

      You should try it! It's easy to make, and quick if you buy the nuts already chopped. Thanks for posting!
