Cherry Banana Fruit Salad Recipe
  • Drain the juice off the cherries and set aside to use later.
  • Cut the cherries in half and take 9 or 10 of the halves and put in a small bowl. These will be used to garnish the top of the salad when it is done. Place the remaining cherries in a separate bowl and set them aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Add the reserved cherry juice and beat until the mixture is smooth again.
  • Then fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Fold in the whipped cream until it is evenly mixed. Do not over stir.
  • Add the cherries (all but the 9 or 10 set aside for the top,) bananas, pineapple, and marshmallows; stir until the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Pour into a serving bowl and place the reserved cherry halves on top of the salad. Chill for completely before serving.
