Frozen Fruit Salad Recipe

There is a frozen fruit salad that my aunt always made when I was growing up. It was far from my favorite. Green with pecans and pineapple bits, she would serve it on a lettuce leaf alongside a plate of chicken salad during the summer. I would eat a few bites and then hurriedly drink a big gulp of sweet tea to wash it down.

When I started dating my husband ages ago, one of my favorite things to do was eat a late lunch or supper at his parents’ house on the weekends – normally on Sundays. One time, I asked her if I could help her with anything and she asked me to pull the frozen fruit salad out of the freezer.

Immediately, my mind flew to those green salads and wondering how I could be polite to not have to eat any of them. I believe she saw my relief as she had to point out the muffin tin filled with pink confection in her freezer to me.

One bite repaired any ill will I had of frozen fruit salad.

It is a family-favorite recipe that is a definite hit for warm weather meals.

Here’s how she makes it.

Frozen Fruit Salad Recipe Ingredients

This is absolutely one of the easiest recipes you can imagine.

You basically just pour everything into a large bowl – cherry pie filling, drained crushed pineapple, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, and Cool Whip – and mix it together.

Then, you’ll either spoon it into lightly greased muffin tins or pour it into a lightly greased large casserole dish.

Pop it into the freezer and allow it to freeze completely, then serve it on a lettuce leaf in the traditional Southern style, or without.

Here’s how I make it.

  1. Thanks. We love this recipe. After freezing, I put the individual servings that are in muffin cups into a plastic bag, and we pull out what we need for a meal.

    1. Thanks, Nan. I always love having these in my freezer, too, that I can pull out whenever I need them.
