This recipe did not turn out as well as I had hoped. It was too liquidy. If I try it again I will be sure to decrease liquid and be sure to drain fruit cocktail really well. Thanks anyway!

I loved this!! It was SO creamy! It went over very well at my house and has become a main element in our family meals. Great way to get my kids to eat plenty of fruit too!!!

I took this dish to a Church Potluck, everyone loved it! The Perfect Fruit Salad!

It is sweet but very good and easy to make.

Excellent recipe. I had to double the recipe since it was for a potluck-type affair, and it turned out great. It was one of the first salads to be completely eaten. This is definitely a keep...

Very good fruit salad....

Made recipe as is and it lacked a lot of flavor. I added more sugar and vanilla, but still rather bland. Will not make again, too many other great fruit salad recipes out there.

I didn't care for the canned fruit in this recipe. There was also too many cherries. This may be just a personal preference. I would make recipe again, substituting fresh fruit for the canned.
