My family has used this as a holiday dish for years. We don't use poppyseeds, but feel free to use all fresh fruit and add the banana with the rest of the fruit.

Thank you, Tami for submitting this. I left my family recipe at home so I checked here - I'm sure that there are other names for it but I've always known it as 24 Hour Salad. However, mine is a bit different, I melt the marshmallows in the egg mix because it helps thicken the salad overall and many people are not fond of the texture of marshmallows. I added a bit more than it calls for as I go by taste. No poppy seeds in mine! I also used a bit more whipping cream as well (maybe a quarter cup extra). Be extra careful when folding in the whipped cream to the rest of it or it can become sloppy. This is a hit every time.

This fruit salad has been a holiday staple in my family ever since I can remember. It's wonderful! The only reason I did not give it five stars is that I do remember not liking it as a child. (Although my child absolutely loves it!) As an adult,however, I adore it! I will say that you must love creamy desserts to enjoy it, but apparently that's not a problem for our family!

I don't know what I did right (or wrong!), but I'm pretty sure I followed the directions and it came out way better than the other reviewers say. I brought it to a bbq and EVERYONE loved it - kids, adults, my picky husband, and me. My husband just asked me the other day if I would make it again just for him.

With the recommendations listed above, this turned out to be delicious. I skimped a little on the whipped cream and marshmellows. I did not add the poppy seeds and I forgot the bananas too (although that was a mistake). The marshmellows got nice and and plump. I have learned with other marshmellow salads that cheaper store brand marshmellows don't plump up; gotta get name brand for this salad. I will make it again.

This was not a big hit with my family. They did not care for the Poppy seeds

I was extremely disappointed in this recipe. I served it for Christmas dinner and only one child liked it. I ended up throwing most of it away. I think that if I'd stopped after tossing the fruit into the cooked dressing, it would've been fine. However, the whipped cream made it way too creamy. If you use marshmallows, I would advise cutting the amount in half at least. The whipped cream and the marshmallows totally overpowered the fruit. I will try it again, just using the cooked dressing and tossing in the fruit.
