Dessert Fruit Salad

I’m not sure where my Mom picked this recipe up, but it has been one of my personal favorites since I was a kid and is now becoming a favorite of my two boys (I made it as a side dish tonight actually!). The recipe is very flexible and easy to adapt for personal taste preferences. I’ll note some of the substitutions I have made over the years. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
-3 Apples Cut in to bite size pieces
-1 Cup Grapes cut in half (can be red or green or both)
-1 Cup Small Marshmallows
-1 Cup Raisins
-½ - 1 Cup of Whipping Cream, Non-Fat Yogurt (removes a lot of the guilt) or ½ and ½ (depends on your cooking/health preferences)
-2 teaspoons Cinnamon
-½ Cup Shredded Coconut (I use sweetened)

*(Option add-ins I have done: dried cranberries, dried apricots, sliced pear, pomegranate seeds)

Directions:
Add all of the above ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Refrigerate until ready to eat. This works well as a side dish or on the healthier side dessert. Enjoy!

Fruit salad... yummy yummy.

Sorry, couldn't help it. ;)

Try grinding a *snickers* bar and sprinkling it over the whipped cream and apple chunks. Mix and enjoy something that tastes like a caramel apple. (Only you wont lose your teeth biting it!)

Oh yum! I will definitely try adding crumbled snickers bar. (Don't ask me why, but that just reminded me that I need to post my famous Tiramasu recipe...)
