Fruit Salad (Ensalada de Frutas)

fruit saldThis fruit salad is a delicious and beautiful recipe for entertaining. I made two different dressings, so you can make both and let people to choose or you can just make your favorite. If you don’t like any of the fruits I included, you can certainly use the fruits of your choice.

I never thought of using a sweet condensed dressing on a fruit salad. I can imagine that it brings fruit to a whole new level.
I have spent the weekend outside watching my son play soccer. It’s hot, I am parched and a fruit salad seems very refreshing. I may have to make a fruit salad this evening with your dressing. Thanks.
