This is very refreshing and delicious Fruit Salad recipe using the 1-2-3 Fruit Dressing. I use whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad. The 1-2-3 Fruit Dressing is from an older Betty Crocker Cookbook. The combination of citrus fruits in the dressing gives the salad a wonderful delicious flavor! Sometimes the older recipes are the best recipes!
