Love: A Langley woman shares her grandson’s favourite

Love: Start your own family traditions - a special section of the Langley Advance published Dec. 8, 2016

This is a favourite for all our family celebrations.

My 13-year-old grandson, Sam, and I have found it necessary to double the recipe for this.

So not only is it our tradition, but we have renamed it “Sam’s Favourite Fruit Salad.”

Allow your grandson/granddaughter to lick the bowl, and let them always have seconds.
