This is a fruit salad that has been in my family for as long as I can remember. It is just a simple fruit salad with a little something extra. You can use any variety of fruit you like and the addition of mint or lime zest to the sauce is a welcome addition. I hope you try this one soon :)
- 1 large can of pineapple chunks in juice
- 1 can of peaches
- 1 can of mandarin oranges
- 1 bunch of strawberries rinsed and chopped
- 2 bananas chopped
- 1 jar of marachino cherries
- 1 big box of instant vanilla pudding
In a 2 cup mixing cup collect the pineapple juice, peach juice and mandarin orange juice till it reaches 2 cups (if you don’t have a full 2 cups don’t worry, it will be fine:).
Add the juice and pudding in a big bowl, wisk to combine.
Throw in your fruits, stir and refrigerate till chilled.
Feel free to add in any other fruits, blueberries and raspberries would be wonderful, and some grapes would be great as well. You can add a little honey, mint or lime zest to the pudding mixture to add an extra layer of flavor.
Serve with dinner or for a dessert and would be fabulous for a brunch.
