I love fruity, fluffy salads. They’re festive, beautiful, have lots of interesting textures, and usually have spectacular taste. They’re also great for holiday dinners, potlucks or company. Most of them can be whipped up in 15 minutes or less. The great thing about these luscious fruit salad recipes is they have been served to our guests over and over again and they soon become family favorites.
My mom never made these kinds of salads growing up. It wasn’t until I moved out of the house as a young adult and started going to church potlucks that I first tasting all these wonderful, delicious salads. I’ve collected many of these recipes from friends over the past 35 years, although a few of them are recipes I’ve tried from other sources like Pinterest.
If you attend a lot of potlucks like we do, or entertain frequently, then these scrumptious fruit salad recipes are great options to choose from. Enjoy the hot summer days with some of our favorite fruit salad recipes.
