The most awesome fruit salad recipe


A couple of weeks back I tried out this awesome fruit salad recipe to bring to a pot luck picnic.

The recipe came with a warning that it would be polished cleaned at any pot luck or gathering. I like coming back from pot lucks with an empty bowl so this sounded like a winner.

The original recipe featured grapes as the main fruit. But as they were currently not in season here, I used a mixture of other fruits:

Three green apples (cubed)
Three red/fuji apples (cubed)
One punnet of strawberries (sliced)
Plus half a can of pineapple (optional)


To bring it all together is a sinfully rich but oh so yummy cream cheese dressing, which you just need to mix together:

Approx 200g cream cheese
Approx 100g sour cream
1/8 cup of icing sugar
A dollop of forest fruits yoghurt (optional)


Combine everything together to create the most delicious fruit salad you’ve probably ever tasted…


And yes, the bowl was completely cleaned out at the picnic – and I promise it wasn’t only because of me. I can’t wait for another excuse to make this again!

  1. Oh my!!! I did a fruit salad couple of months ago, found the recipe in the net n silly old me forgot to bookmark it, thus I have no idea what did I use for the dressing.

    Till now!

    Though the ingredients are slightly different but it should do for now. Thanks for saving me!

    1. Happy that this post managed to help you out with that, DinoMama! ^_^

      I think the recipe can be varied and adjusted to what you like, be it the proportions of sugar or cream cheese or sour cream or adding/substituting greek yoghurt etc.
