Nancy's Fruit Salad

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This fruit salad is simple, colorful, refreshing, and a little tangy (due to the mandarin oranges), great to bring to potlucks and picnics. I served it at Easter supper this year to counteract all that candy. Shredded coconut can be sprinkled on top for a sweeter salad."

Couldn't find melons or coconut flakes so I just squeezed some mandarin juice over the salad, and it was delicious! Tweaked it with just 3 ingredients, and it was still good!
