Food: Fruit Salad

This is a family favorite. One of those dishes that every family member takes some home. My Dad has made this fruit salad at Thanksgiving and Christmas all of my life. He makes what we'd call a "washtub" full. Seriously, a huge bowl and there is never any wasted. 

Daddy's Holiday Fruit Salad
6 Large Bananas
6-7 Large Apples
1 lb Seedless Grapes
2 cups canned Fruit Cocktail
1 bag Miniature Marshmallows
1 cup Mayonnaise (or more.. whatever it takes to make it moist)
1 lb Chopped Walnuts

Slice all the fruit into a bowl, add in fruit cocktail, marshmallows, mayonnaise, and walnuts. Mix together and place in the fridge over night. 

Is it fattening? You betcha. But it is delicious and that makes up for the calories.
