Due to my picky eater syndrome, I’m not much of a salad eater. In fact I only started eating lettuce a few years ago. And the only salads that I usually eat involve fruit and/or whipped cream. Combine both of them and I’m in Heaven. This fluffy fruit salad is now my favorite salad, but also my daughter, Tatym’s. Credit for the recipe goes to my mom.
Fluffy Fruit Salad Recipe
- 1 small package vanilla instant pudding (must be “instant”)
- 1 can chunky pineapple (I’ve used ringed and cut them up as well)
- 1 can mandarin oranges
- 1 can fruit cocktail
- 1 tub Cool Whip (or any brand whipped topping)
- 1 cup marshmallows (I personally measure by using “two handfuls”)
Mix pudding mix with juice from pineapple (I open can and hold lid on to pour juice off the fruit into the bowl). Once mixed, then you can add the drained pineapple, mandarin oranges and fruit cocktail (do drain those two in sink first). Fold in whipped topping and marshmallows. Chill, serve and enjoy!
