This was a good fruit salad, Very sweet. It did not keep well though. The afternoon after I had made it, it looked awful. I think this was due to the marshmallow cream, which was a little over the top in my opinion. This recipe was good, but I believe it could use a little tweaking.

I think this dish was delicious. The apples and bananas remained fresh for days. I will definitely make it again.

I loved this fruit salad and so did my Easter guests. My recommendation would be to make sure you drain all the canned fruit really well, as it does have a tendency to get a little watery after it sits. I had to drain the excess liquid a couple of times after the salad was made. Leftovers the next day were still very good, and the walnuts and apples were still crunchy. I did not bother to halve the cherries. Thanks for the easy, tasty recipe, Espinoza!
