Light Fruit Salad

A fruit salad is a colorful and delicious way to serve up fresh fruit in the summertime. I have a number of recipes I make that are variations of the traditional fruit salad, and I love them all. This recipe is a little different because it is sweetened with powdered sugar and flavored with vanilla extract. The original recipe is from McCormick, but this is my adapted version and a favorite at my house.

  1. This looks yummy. I love fruit but rarely make fruit salads. However, I love adding fruit to my veggie salads.
