My fruit choices sometimes match the Jello flavor (Ex.: mandarin orange slices and drained crushed pineapple with orange Jello. Or drained fruit cocktail with lime Jello.) With fruit cocktail, no more fruit is necessary unless you want to add it.
You don't have to use sugarfree ingredients in this, if you choose not to.
Source: A pal brought a dish of this to my Papaw's memorial years ago. I though it was heavenly and asked for the recipe. I've changed it to suit my own tastes, any fruits can be used in it. This recipe always gets compliments.
