Spring Salad Surprise

Why the surprise?  This is my favorite salad of all time and I haven't posted it yet!?!  How could I do this to you?  My kids BEG for this salad.  I love the dressing on any fruity salad.  I have cut the sugar down some from the original recipe-- Feel free to cut the sugar down some more if you like.  Here you go...
