I have looked for this recipe for years and was so glad to have finally found it. A relative of mine made this years ago and I asked for the recipe, but never received it. I used one can of fruit cocktail and chopped up two bananas and an orange and threw it in there. It was delicious! Thanks for giving me a new dish for this Easter that I will use many times over!

I've been making this for years, and never knew it had a name! This is an unusual salad, but is very well received. It's cool and refreshingly sweet, but not sugar-ey. Good w/grilled chicken.

I've tried this before, but it was called "Rosamarina Salad." It's a nice, light treat, however, I will add a little more sugar next batch I make. Not sweet enough for my taste, even with the addition of the whipped topping. Also, I might consider chopped pineapple instead of crushed next time as well.
