Whether it’s summertime and you’re going to BBQ, or you’re looking for a refreshing side dish this creamy easy fruit salad is fantastic! You can use any fresh or canned fruits you like. I use what’s on sale, and everyone loves it. (originally published 10/16)

We live where are lots of strawberry farms and farmers markets. When the fruit is inexpensive and beautiful it is a perfect time to make an easy fruit salad. It’s not only is it a great side dish you can call it “dessert” when you add these 2 ingredients to make a creamy fruit salad!

If if you can get your hands on a watermelon I would add chunks of that too. Next to our ambrosia recipe this is a favorite around here.

So first off this fruit salad recipe is very versatile. I typically use whatever fruits I find that are in season, look the best, and are the least expensive.

This time the blueberries and strawberries were buy one get one free so I focused on those and grabbed a can of mandarin oranges in light syrup to add as well.

The creamy mixture is just two ingredients, light or fat free sour cream and whipped topping…that’s it!!

It brings a creaminess to this easy fruit salad recipe and a bit of sweetness too.

I have added tiny marshmallows at times and called it ambrosia too.
