Cream Cheese Fruit Salad

    20 min

    A fantastically different fruit salad, which has the perfect combination of flavours and textures. Fruit is tossed with strawberry cream cheese and salted pretzels. The sweet and saltiness of this dish, goes together exceedingly well. If you don't like pretzels, feel free to substitute in salted nuts.

    I was searching for a fruit salad "dressing" using cream cheese and ran across this recipe. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was DELICIOUS! The only difference was I added fresh strawberries to regular cream cheese (I didn't have strawberry cream cheese) and I added the nuts to the mixture to chop it all together. It won rave reviews from all at the table and I am adding it to my "must use" recipes.  -  24 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was great as a side to a summertime lunch-but leave the pretzels out as they will get very soggy.  -  22 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My very picky son loved this recipe, as did I. I did just sprinkle the pretzel crumbs on top of the portions that I served, and it did taste better that way than without the pretzels. A great way to get my son (and myself) to eat lots of fruit.  -  26 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
