This recipe is super easy and a refreshing addition to any occasion!!  It can be served as a side dish or dessert.

We were served this fruit salad when my daughter’s college roommate’s family invited us over for a light summer meal after a 3½ hour drive from Cleveland to Dayton. We loved it so much we had to have the recipe! We have been making it and sharing it ever since. Enjoy!
