Holiday traditions – Fruit Salad Recipe

I’m so happy to share one of my favorite holiday recipes with you! This is my great Grandma Hart’s Fruit salad – some people call it ambrosia or cuppa salad as well, but to me it’s always great-grandma’s fruit salad.

I’m sure there are variations but this has been how I’ve made it ever since I COULD make food!

My great-grandma’s fruit salad is a holiday tradition for me and one I hope my boys will pass down. Along with the turkey and stuffing and pumpkin pie it’s one little bit of the past that carries on. Isn’t that the best thing about family recipes? They keep our history alive by sharing things our families shared around their tables so many years ago…
