If the last time you had fruit salad was at your grandma's house, you're not alone. The old school dish is of a bygone era—a time when ambrosia and Jell-O molds were all the rage and Nixon was president. Back then, fruit salads were nothing more than sad, soggy, and best served at bingo games.
But not any more. As retro as they may be, they're making a comeback (we swear!). Think of it this way: They're usually made out of some combination of chopped fruit, crushed nuts, and either a silky yogurt sauce or sticky sweet syrup. Despite how we've been taught to feel about fruit salad, all those ingredients sound seriously amazing.
Plus, nowadays, food bloggers are taking this #TBT favorite further into the future with fun, healthy add-ins like quinoa, basil, and, in some cases, cheese such as mozzarella and feta. Admit it, your interest is piqued. If not, these 11 recipes will definitely grab your attention and prove to you that it's time to give fruit salad another shot.
