The recipe had good flavor but turned out very, very soupy. Not a very neat dish for a breakfast potluck

A friend a mine did hers without the cream cheese but, I worried that it may be to runny, so I used your recipe and added a container of cool whip and deleted adding the fruit cocktail juice. I recommend using fresh fruit instead of canned. It gives this dish a good taste. Great recipe, bravo!!!!

I have made this several times - most recently just now! - and I think its very yummy! I add toasted pecans or walnuts (adding some toasted nuts is a must!), apples, grapes, and remove the honeydew, cut the fruit cocktail to one can and take out a little of the liquid to make it not so soupy, and it turns out AWESOME. I've even added mini marshmellows to it for a more ambrosia style salad. My hubby who doesn't like cream cheese even likes this. Thanks Veronica for a great fruit salad staple recipe!

I love sweetened condensed milk! There are not many things you can make with it that I don't like. Add cream cheese to that and you make it even better! This is a great recipe. I did use fresh fruit instead of canned: apples, pears, peaches, nectarine, strawberries, grapes, plums, kiwi, and banana. It is a great change from an ordinary fruit salad.

I usually make a citrus vinegrette with my fruit salad, but my nephew is allergic to both citrus and vinegar! I'm not fond of mayo and cool whip salads, either - needless to say I was pleased to find this recipe. The flavor of this salad is great - it doesn't overpower the fruit at all! I added 1 cup chopped nuts. I had some of the cream cheese mixture left over, so I used it as fruit dip the day after Thanksgiving. A real winner!

Yummy flavor but mine was a little soupy, and I had only used 1/2 the sweetened cond. milk the recipe called for. Regardless, everyone loved the flavor.
