Seven Fruit Two Cup Salad

I call this my Seven Fruit Two Cup Salad because it has 2 cups of each kind of fruit and 2 cups of juice. Add whatever fruit you have in the house and don’t be afraid to use canned fruit, like I did, for even more variety.

Rinse and dice the fresh fruit into bite size pieces.

Drain any canned fruit and reserve the liquid.

Pour the canned juice into a measuring cup.

If there is not enough for 2 cups, add

orange juice to the 2 cup mark.

Pour the juice over the fruit and toss. Refrigerate for four

hours, tossing every hour. This will keep for a few days but

looks best when served in about four hours. I ate mine

for three days and the fruit was still firm and delicious.

    • Oh you know them well. I had my grandson here but my granddaughter was at home. Because I don’t play favorites I sent a bowl of it with my husband to drop off for my granddaughter. She was thrilled to say the least. Thank you Cheryl. ❤️

  1. I love a good fruit cocktail salad! 🙂 Canned fruit is awesome and I love the juice, especially canned peaches! Enjoy this last burst of summer goodness.

    • Me too Patty. Usually I make a sugar/juice to pour over the top but this time I didn’t use sugar because the fruit was so sweet this year. It was a great year for fruit. Thank you!

  2. This I can handle. My mom used to make ambrosia salad which I loved. I made it since I’ve been alone and by the time I finished it all off, I didn’t want to see it for a long time. There is nothing nothing nicer than chilled fruit salad on a hot day.

  3. Ohh, that looks good, Diane. I am a big fan of fresh fruit. That looks so good.
