Recipe: Fruit Salad

The other night, I was asked to bring a salad to an event, and brought this gem. Its a recipe that I've had for years and years, and never fails to please. Its easy, and best of all it is a fruit salad that can be made just about any time of the year. The main fruit in it is apples, so it is a wonderful winter fruit salad as well as any other season! The sauce is thick and yummy!

The recipe is as follows:

Fruit Salad

1 small package dry vanilla pudding (cook-type)
1 small package dry tapioca pudding (cook-type)
2 c. orange juice
1 c. pineapple juice

any fresh fruit except melons
can use apples, pineapple, grapes, bananas, strawberries, raspberries, etc.)

for a large salad, feeding 12 people, I used
-5 Fuji apples, diced
-2 cups fresh pineapple, cut into small pieces
-2 cups grapes
-3 large bananas, sliced
-1 pint strawberries, sliced

Combine the dry pudding mixes and the orange juice and pineapple juice in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool.

Combine all of the fruit in a large bowl. Pour cooled sauce over all the fruit and fold in, to cover all of the fruit. I like to mix my salad up in a large bowl and then pour salad it into a pretty bowl for serving. Enjoy!
