Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The best Fruit Salad ever....also a favorite of the Morrells. LaWana is always asked to bring this salad and there usually isn't any left over's. LaWana's secret: dry the apples on clean dish towel, drain the canned fruit and make sure whipped cream mixture is firm before pouring over the fruit. Yummy!!!
