A winter fruit salad. Ever wonder what you should bring as a fruit salad during the winter time…. well here’s a great one. I love it because it’s easy and tasty. It also has the beautiful colors of winter. It’s also easy on the pocketbook. It’s very versitile, and unique. In fact, I gave this recipe out today to a dear friend who called to get ideas for her family party. Happy Baking & Merry Christmas.
