Fresh Fruit Salad
This is my favorite fresh fruit salad. My mother-in-law, Gertrude Zemp, taught me to make this when I was a young bride. It is very refreshing and also low in calories. I use whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad. The banana dressing is very light and compliments the fruit. You will never want to make a “yucky” canned fruit salad again!
