One Minute, Twenty-Four Hour Salad

Comment on this recipe

I often use a fruit cocktail, peaches, pears and mandarin orange. Sugar free pudding works best if made night before as it does not dissolve "instantly". For variety vary fruits,type of pineapple or flavor of pudding. Pistashio, butterscotch, lemon etc. Chunk canned fruit is nice if on hand. Refrigerating cans overnight makes it cold to serve,extra nice in summer.

Ingredients

1 pound can crushed pineapple in juice
1 3 ounce box instant vanilla pudding
3-4 pound cans fruit drained
Coconut and/or chopped nuts (optional)

Instructions

In a large bowl mix pineapple and dry pudding mix. Add fruits of choice, and if you like, optional coconut and/or chopped nuts.

Cara Ausmus, Aledo
