This first fruit salad recipe is from our reader Bea who found it on the Mr. Food website. It seems like I always have leftover rice and this recipe is a good way to use it. It’s ok if you only have 1-1 1/2 cups left– You can still use this recipe. Just use what you have. Also, you can mix and match the fruit, using different kinds too.

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Here is a second fruit salad recipe from another reader, Rachel. She said she saw this one on Martha Stewart. It is super easy.Print
Light and Easy Fruit Salad
Sweetened condensed milk
- Cut up any type of fresh, frozen or canned fruit that you have.
- Place it into a bowl.
- Pour just enough sweetened condensed milk on it to barely coat the fruit until the sweetened condensed milk clings to the fruit. Don’t drown it.
- Serve in parfait glasses if you like.
- Top with toasted coconut.
Rachel said that since she is the only one in her family who eats fruit, she keeps the sweetened condensed milk in the fridge in a container and then uses what she needs each day for her own individual servings.
The next fruit salad recipe is one I have used for decades and I love to make it for a refreshing fruit salad in the winter. I keep cans of tropical fruit in my pantry to use for this but you could use fresh fruit if you want – mango, papaya, pineapple, etc.
I like to use a combination of fresh and canned fruit. For some reason, adding one fresh ingredient to anything canned seems to lead people to automatically think the whole thing is fresh.Print
Tropical Fruit Salad Recipe
1 can (any size) tropical fruit
1 banana, sliced
whipped topping, optional
- Place the canned fruit in bowl.
- Add banana.
- Sprinkle coconut over the top.
- If you serve it in serving dishes you could add a dollop of whipped topping with a cherry on top but it isn’t necessary.

Sounds yummy! Something I do for Christmas breakfast is waffles with fruit. I take a container of whipped topping, the regular size and mix a drained can of tropical fruit, pineapple and a fresh sliced banana, or a drained can of fruit cocktail. Mix well and place on top of a cooked waffle. My family loves it, and you can prepare it the night before (except add the banana prior to serving to avoid browning).
I made the million dollar rice salad earlier this week . We finished it off at lunch. It is so easy and oh so good. I sure appreciate all your work.
