  1. This fruit salad is the BEST ever! A lot of the reviews said it was runny or didn't turn out. I took suggestions from other reviewers and found exactly what you need to do for a great fruit salad. Reduce the milk to 1 cup. Make the orange dressing the night before and refrigerate it. - Read more ...
  2. I didn't have any problem with this being too runny. Reduced the milk to 1 cup and added a dibble of vanilla, and a drop or two of orange extract to the dressing. I soaked the apples and bananas for 10 minutes each in the pineapple juice (a trick I learned on this site) to - Read more ...
  3. This recipe is awesome and really easy! I omitted the apple and banana and substituted in a can of pears (drained and cubed). I also used only 1 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of fat free sour cream. If you are in a hurry and don't have time to drain the fruit overnight in - Read more ...
  4. This was pretty good. I liked the concept, and liked the orange cream flavor, but thought the apples and banana were out of place. I'd make this again, but without them.

  8. This was delicious and a huge hit. Considering prior reviews indicating that it was a bit runny I took others' advice and cut the milk to 1 cup and the sour cream to 1/2 c. I mixed the fruit and cream separately and let them sit overnight (except for the apples which I added at - Read more ...
  9. YUM! The only reason I didn't give this recipe 5 stars, is that the amount of milk called for is too much. I omitted about 1/2 cup of the milk, and the consistency was just about right. I made this for my husband's college graduation party, and everyone loved it. I made the salad the - Read more ...
