Mom’s Fruit Salad Recipe
My Mom’s Fruit Salad Recipe is the perfect recipe for all your summer gatherings. My mom makes this a lot in the summer and I can see why! It only takes about 5 minutes to whip up and is also budget friendly. Plus the only dishes you will dirty is the bowl you use, a knife, and a spoon, so the clean up is a breeze. Who wants to be standing in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove and a sink full of dishes in the summer anyways? Not me, that’s for sure!
2 – ( 29 oz) Cans Fruit Cocktail
2 – ( 15 oz) cans mandarin oranges

1 – ( 15.5 oz) container strawberries with syrup ( or sugar), Thawed

Pour all ingredients ( entire cans, juice and all) , except bananas, in a large serving bowl and gently mix. When ready to serve, slice bananas and add them to the fruit salad. Store in the Refridgerator.
*If you can not find Strawberries with syrup or sugar – Buy a bag of frozen strawberries and sprinkle them with sugar and let them thaw in the fridge overnight. They should make their own syrup that way.
