Quick fruit salad in a jar to go | you-made-that.comNeed something quick but tasty to take to a BBQ or picnic, who doesn’t like fruit salad? Most people love a good fruit salad and what a great way to take it to a party in individual portions. Just fill half pint or pint size jars put the lids on and toss in a cooler and you’re ready to party. I have an easy sauce for your fruit salad, I like to use equal parts flavored yogurt and whip cream or cool-whip which ever you have.  For a small salad like the one in the picture I used 4 oz. of each.  I use whatever fruit I have, sometimes the frozen variety and sometimes not.

I had not heard of combining yogurt and whipped cream. That has to be absolutely fantastic. Do I really have to add fruit? 😉

Oh that's optional!

Love fruit salad! When I make it for morning breakfasts I sometimes use an orange juice mixture… I can't even think what it's called… but the recipe calls it a fruit cup. We really like it here. I try to use all fresh fruit. I have a thing with store-bought frozen fruit. LOL!!! (But for your picture, I use cool whip. Never thought of yogurt- thanks for the idea!)
