A friend a mine did hers without the cream cheese but I worried that it may be to runny so I used your recipe and added a container of cool whip and deleted adding the fruit cocktail juice. I recommend using fresh fruit instead of canned. It gives this dish a good taste. Great recipe bravo!!!!
I have made this several times - most recently just now! - and I think its very yummy! I add toasted pecans or walnuts (adding some toasted nuts is a must!) apples grapes and remove the honeydew cut the fruit cocktail to one can and take out a little of the liquid to make it not so soupy and it turns out AWESOME. I've even added mini marshmellows to it for a more ambrosia style salad. My hubby who doesn't like cream cheese even likes this. Thanks Veronica for a great fruit salad staple recipe!
I love sweetened condensed milk! There are not many things you can make with it that I don't like. Add cream cheese to that and you make it even better! This is a great recipe. I did use fresh fruit instead of canned: apples pears peaches nectarine strawberries grapes plums kiwi and banana. It is a great change from an ordinary fruit salad.
I usually make a citrus vinegrette with my fruit salad but my nephew is allergic to both citrus and vinegar! I'm not fond of mayo and cool whip salads either - needless to say I was pleased to find this recipe. The flavor of this salad is great - it doesn't overpower the fruit at all! I added 1 cup chopped nuts. I had some of the cream cheese mixture left over so I used it as fruit dip the day after Thanksgiving. A real winner!
