"This is a fruit salad my mother-in-law makes, and it is just wonderful and probably the best I have ever had. If you don't like a particular fruit, just substitute it with one that you like! Sometimes my mother-in-law uses peeled and chopped pear in this recipe, you can use pomegranate seeds, mandarin oranges...just whatever seasonal fruit is available to you, it's a very forgiving recipe and completely full of vitamins." — witchywoman

1 (15 ounce) can
pineapple chunks, drained (juice reserved)
1 (10 ounce) jar

Very good with just enough sweetness. I didn't have grapefruit so I used strawberries instead.
Everyone REALLY loved this!!! Five stars!!
