Fruit salads

About fruit salads

The first salad was created between 1893 and 1896 at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City
(the precursor of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, which opened in 1931).
Fruit salad (also called Macedonia) is a dish consisting of various kinds of fruit,
served either in their own juices or a syrup. In different forms fruit salad can be
served as an appetizer, a side-salad, or a dessert. When served as an appetizer
or as a dessert, a fruit salad is also known as a fruit cocktail.
Small cups of fruit salad are commonly served for dessert in American
public schools. In many cases it is the only dessert offered.
There is a lot of variations of fruit salads.One variation is:
a Waldorf-style fruit salad, which uses a mayonnaise-based sauce.
Other recipes use sour cream (such as in ambrosia), yogurt or even mustard
as the primary sauce ingredient. An ever-popular variation also uses whipped
cream mixed in with many varieties of fruits (usually a mixture of berries),
and also often include miniature marshmallows.
