This is very refreshing and delicious Fruit Salad recipe using the 1-2-3 Fruit Dressing. I use whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad. The 1-2-3 Fruit Dressing is from an older Betty Crocker Cookbook. The combination of citrus fruits in the dressing gives the salad a wonderful delicious flavor! Sometimes the older recipes are the best recipes!

Fruit salad is a delicious dessert that you can make in less than ten minutes — and one that you can enjoy without gaining weight. Fruit salad can also be a perfect way to start your morning, a great side dish at a daytime picnic or party, or the perfect snack during any time of day. If you want to know how to make fruit salad in various ways, just follow these steps.
Ingredients: Simple Fruit Salad
1 cup strawberries, 1 cup cherries, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 red apple, 1/2 peach, 1 kiwi, 2 tbsp. lemon juice
Choose your fruits. Pick up fresh fruit from the farmer’s market or your local grocery store and make sure that they are nice and ripe and ready to be made into a salad. If they are not ripe enough, then the salad will be a bit tough to chew. It is better for them to be a bit overripe than unripe so that the flavors blend. For this simple fruit salad, you’ll need strawberries, cherries, blueberries, red apples, peaches, and a kiwi.
Halve your cherries. If you want the salad to be easy to eat without having to run into any cherry pits, then you should halve 1 cup of red cherries before you put them into the salad. Just cut each cherry in half and remove its pit.
Chop the strawberries, red apple, peach, and kiwi into bite-sized pieces. Place 1 cup of strawberries, 1 cup of cherries, 1/2 of a red apple, 1/2 of a peach, and 1 kiwi on a cutting board and dice them into bite-sized pieces, measuring over 1 inch (2.5 cm) or so.
Serve. Enjoy this dish at room temperature or slightly chilled. Pair this dish with a glass of orange juice to help bring out its fruity flavor.
