Rainbow Fruit Salad

When my children were young, I would often dress up fresh fruit in this easy salad. Decades later, my grandchildren and great-grandchildren still love digging in to the fruity layers. The salad goes well with barbecued meats or cold sandwiches. —Jonnie Adams Sisler, Stevensville, Montana

    I layered the fruit with the cream cheese and whipped cream filling. The kids really liked it. The fruit is fresh and healthy for them and if i had put the filling top; I knew they would be suspicious. Works for me.
