Uncle Steve's Fruit Salad

This photo shows strawberries and kiwi instead of cherries
it's very versatile

This recipe serves 15-20 depending on how much you add.  Cut out fruits you don't like to make it smaller or use smaller cans.  This is one of those recipes that was never written down, so there's a lot of "eyeballin' and guessin'". Use the size can that works for you. Add similar amount of fresh fruit.  For example if you use small cans use one medium size of each fresh fruit.  Increase or decrease as you like. Substitute fresh fruits per season.

2 cans fruit cocktail
1 can peaches, bite size
1 can pears, bite size
1 can chunk pineapple
1 can tropical fruit
1 can mandarin oranges
fresh bananas sliced
fresh or Maraschino cherries
fresh oranges, quartered
fresh apples, sweet and firm, cut into bite size
1/3 large container of Nutrasweet (I don't know how large, that's all he said!!)
OR 1 1/2 c sugar, more or less to taste

Drain all cans VERY well.  It will still make a little juice even after draining.
Mix all together in large bowl.
Serve within a couple hours of making.
If you need to go far, add bananas when you get to where you're going.

Until Next Time.....
