Jessie James Decker's Fruit Salad

A family favorite, fruit salad recipe made with fresh cream, pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, apples, strawberries, maraschino cherries, sliced bananas and marshmallows. 
I love easy holiday side dishes and this Fruit Salad is one of those recipes. For the longest time this Ambrosia Fruit Salad or Jell-O Fluff has always graced our holiday table, but last Christmas, I came across Jessie James Decker's Fruit Salad recipe and I have to say that it's just as equally delicious. 

This fruit salad is creamy, light and packed full of fruit flavor. You can serve this as a dessert or a side dish, making it perfect for holidays, potlucks or cookouts. This fruit salad is made with fresh cream, pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, apples, strawberries, maraschino cherries, sliced bananas and mini marshmallows.  🍒🍍🍎 🍌🍇

Several fruit salad recipes call for whipped topping, but I like to use fresh cream. It only takes minutes to whip up fresh whipped cream and it tastes so much better. Serve this salad well chilled for best results. If you are heading over to a holiday get-together or dinner this fruit salad is the perfect light dessert that everyone will love! ❤
