Fluffy Fruit Salad


It is Thanksgiving week! Time to start thawing the turkey and prepping for the many sides that will grace your family table. Maybe you are feeding your family at your house or heading over the river and through the woods. As for me, I am driving the 10 miles to my parents to celebrate and bask in family, food and laughs. Time to be thankful for everything and everyone in my life. And I am very blessed.

One side dish that we enjoy at our family table for many meals is this Fluffy Fruit Salad. This was my Papa Jim’s favorite salad ever. We call it Papa’s salad. It is light and refreshing and brings that little sweet that is craved.

Easy. Quick. Delicious.
