Strawberry Grape Marshmallow Salad

I can't seem to get enough strawberries during these hot Summer months.  Every time I go to the grocery store, those bright red berries call my name.  I often eat them plain or topped with a little sugar, but the other day, I realized I didn't have any kind of fruit salad recipe on the blog.  So, I got on that right away and threw together this super delicious fruit salad.
For this fruit salad, I decided to use sweet strawberries mixed with juicy red grapes.  The two different textures of fruit go great together.  AND because I am a sucker for marshmallows, I threw some of those in as well.  The dressing is sweet, tangy, creamy and flavored with a touch of orange. This fruit salad was a huge hit.

It's best when served within 24 hours.  After that, it will be tinted pink from the strawberries.  It still tastes good, just doesn't look as pretty.

What are your favorite fruits to use for fruit salad?
