Fruit Salad always makes such a pretty presentation and I make several kinds.  This version of fruit salad is Raime’s favorite so it’s the one we had for Easter dinner.  The odd thing about this fruit salad is that it contains black pepper…just a tad.  I am sure that you won’t notice that it’s in there but I am sure you might it if wasn’t.  I put all fresh fruit in the salad but you can substitue with drained canned fruit as well.  Enjoy!

  1. My husband is a huge fruit salad fan, so I’m always happy to find new recipes. I’ve never put black pepper in one…I will definitely have to try.

  2. I love fruit salads…and the wee bit of black pepper is an intriguing ingredient! Looks great, Karen~

    • Thanks Liz, the black pepper is a bit of a switch but I really like it is an addition to this. I too am a fruit salad person and I have another recipe that is close but not quite the same as this I plan to put on soon. Hope you check it out. Thanks for dropping by!

    This would be so good for dieting, you could even substitue low fat mayo. I typically don’t like yogurt but I have two fruit salads I use yogurt in and I love it! Thanks for coming by!

  4. I am on a diet right now so any recipe as good looking as this one for a salad is more than welcomed!
