Creamy Fruit Salad

cream-fruit-saladFruit Salad topped with whip cream is a must at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner at our house. I always make a great big bowl of it and ALWAYS HOPE for left overs.

Who can resist all of that nice fruit topped with whip cream?
NOT ME!

This was a tradition as far back as I can remember starting with my grandmother.
We had a jersey cow so there was always cream and an orchard with all kinds of fruit … the store bought maraschino cherries were my favorite. :)

I remember sneaking into the refrigerator one afternoon and taking a gulp of maraschino cherry juice.
BIG MISTAKE! … I could not breath for long enough I though I was going to die. The last time I tried that.

This salad has been a holiday tradition for as long as I can remember. A childhood favorite and favorite still today.
