Thanksgiving Favorites: My Mom’s Fruit Salad [VIDEO]
Anytime my family gets together, I always request my Mom make my favorite food... her green beans. So, naturally, when us DJ's decided to share our favorite family recipes for Thanksgiving, I knew I would share my Mom's green beans with y'all. Curveball thou, my Mom had to start making them before I got to her house, so we'll be making fruit salad, ha!
But, the fruit salad is a family favorite and it is delicious! So, here's my Mom, Carsyn and me, showing you how to make our fruit salad... Enjoy!
It really is great and everyone always loves it! Here's the recipe for y'all...
Janet's (from Ms. Hope) Fruit Salad
1 package of seedless grapes, cut into quarters (white or purple)
1 large can of peaches, drained, diced
2 large cans of mandarins, drained, diced
2 apples, peeled and diced
1 can of crushed pineapples, drain but save a little of the juice to pour over the apples to prevent browning
1 container of frozen sweetened strawberries
3-4 bananas (if making in advance, don't add the bananas until an hour or two before serving)
1 can of peach pie filling, dice peaches
Just drain, dice and mix the fruit and pie filling together... Put in a pretty container and enjoy!
From my family to yours... Happy Thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for that can't be bought in a store somewhere. I hope that your Thanksgiving holiday is full of yummy food, lots of friends and family and smiles and laughter!
