Easy fruit salad

Today I wanted to share a simple family recipe that is very dear to me. My Uncle Harold, who recently passed away would make this fruit salad every time I came to visit. It was his “special” dish. I will always remember this fruit salad recipe as “Harold’s fruit salad.” We all loved it and still try to make it often. It’s now one of my kids favorites too! Thanks to my gramma for this delicious recipe. :)

This fruit salad is super easy to make and is really yummy. It’s always a favorite whenever I bring it to a potluck. The coconut and marshmallows are what really put it over the top! Mmm…

Easy and delicious fruit salad
