Secret Fruit Salad

Secret Fruit Salad

I really like this recipe for Secret Fruit Salad, and I’m usually not a huge fruit salad fan. Something about the texture of a lot of fruit salads doesn’t work for me. I like this one with extra firm grapes. The vanilla pudding mix in this recipe gives the fruit a sweet glaze that really steps up the the flavor. What’s your favorite fruit salad recipe?

Did you know peaches are Arkansas’ top fruit crop?
