Wow, this is almost identical to my Grandmother’s fruit salad recipe that I can’t live without on the holidays. It even looks a bit like her handwriting. Very sweet. Makes me nostalgic. :)

This wonderful recipe was a holiday staple at our house in the 1950s & I was THRILLED to find it here. We doubled the first five ingredients & whipping cream. It is absolutely delicious. The recipe came from one of the very first Betty Crocker cookbooks, long lost. Thank you so much for posting it!

I make this every holiday and my kids and now, grandkids, look forward to Nonna’s fruit salad. I do have the original Betty Crocker cookbook but did not bring it to our winter home, so appreciated finding it here. Doubling the sauce mixture is interesting and I will try it for the next holiday meal. Thanks for the tip.
