Behind the Lace Curtains-Sunday Dinner, Fruit Cocktail Salad

Fruit cocktail salad was one of those open-a-can wonders that somehow always found itself on any celebration table in my family.  It is simply a can of fruit cocktail, drained, and a can of Mandarin oranges, drained, and some whipping cream, usually Cool-Whip, but I like to make my own.  Sometimes we add walnuts, a Granny Smith apple, and bananas, but my brother Donald hates bananas so I never add them.  I have no idea where the recipe came from, but if it isn’t on the Thanksgiving table I hear it!
