I used half the whipped topping, omitted the bananas, added grapes, and used pineapple chunks instead of crushed pineapple. It was delicious and just like the one my grandma used to make. Defini...

This was good. I think the recipe calls for way, way too much whipped topping. I used an 8 oz container of Cool Whip because I didn't realize the recipe called for a 16 oz container and I though...
