Little Frozen Fruit Salads

Little Frozen Fruit Salads

1 8-oz package softened cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups sour cream
1 pint blueberries
2 cups chopped peaches
1 cup seedless grapes
1/4 cup chopped maraschino cherries or strawberries
pineapple rings
lettuce
sour cream
maraschino cherries

Beat cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, salt, and sour cream. Stir in blueberries, peaches, grapes, and chopped cherries.

Place paper liners in 16 muffin tins, fill with mixture, and freeze. Remove salad from freezer about 15 minutes before serving. Peel liners and allow salad to soften slightly.

Place each salad on a pineapple ring resting on a bed of lettuce. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and top with a maraschino cherry or strawberry.

Actually, these are the oldies - but goodies, that I'd forgotten about. The little frozen salads are a nice appy for a Thanksgiving or any time dinner. Ambrosia is another favorite. Wonder if I can freeze it in little cups?

As T-Day approaches, can't decide on my little frozen fruit salads or Ambrosia - which I love, love, love.

Anyone have a fav Ambrosia recipe? Talk me into it.

In our family we only use navel oranges and coconut with a smidgen of sugar in our ambrosia. My son does what I thought was so crazy. He mixes the ambrosia with cranberry relish and comes up with his own recipe (at the table). I teased him about it once and several other people tried it and liked it. I still enjoy mine separate.

i think my family's ambrosia is whipped cream, lite fruit cocktail sans syrup, citrus supremes (navel, blood, ruby red, tangerine), berries (black and straw), and teeny marshmallows.
not sure if this is everything, but it's close.
most of the variations have to do with what's fresh.
