Hello Spring! Very Pretty Molded Fruit Salad

This is a real showstopper on your Spring buffet table, or any time! I got this recipe from the Southern Living 1988 Annual Recipes book I picked up at a second-hand store for 10 cents. I think it was originally called Christmas Salad. It's not only beautiful, but very tasty, too. Use a smooth rather than decorative mold if you have one, it shows off the berries better, but this is not mandatory. When placed on a platter on lettuce leaves, with pineapple slices and a strawberry fan in the middle of the ring...a showstopper! Cook time is chill time.
