Wow I was surprised to see this recipe on here! I grew up with Frog-eye salad every Thanksgiving and any other big gathering where food was present. I love this recipe and think that everyone should try it at least once. Don't let the name discourage you from trying it out, it really is delicious! If you are a fan of fruit salads and even pecan salads (the gooye green one) you will love Frog-eye salad.
