Frozen Fruit Salad

This brings back memories of my childhood Christmases. My Grandmother, Mother and Aunt Faye would make this for the Holidays. We loved it. It has no Mayonnaise or Marshmallow in it like many other Fruit Salad Recipes.




This is my Pampered Chef Springform Pan with a Tempered Glass Bottom.

This is my Calphalon Non Stick Square Pan.
I like it because of the Straight Sides which have Straight Corners.
Most Pans have Rounded Corners like the one pictured below.
