I'm reposting this recipe from last year at the same time, when summer is drawing near. This is an awesome recipe to welcome those warmer days ahead.
I love this fruit salad; but the Wiggles have cursed me. I can't make this dish without singing, "Fruit Salad, Yummy! Yummy!" when I'm in the kitchen. Oh, well. It could be worse, I guess. The thing about this salad that makes it so yummy is the delicious sauce made out of instant pudding and juice. Wowzy, Woo Woo!
1 pint strawberries, halved
1 small bunch green grapes
2 bananas, sliced
3 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 green apple, cubed
1 pear, cubed
1 can mandarin oranges
1 can pineapple chunks, drained (reserve the juice for the sauce)
1 small pack of vanilla instant pudding mix
1 can of banana strawberry nectar (you can find this in the international section)
juice from the can of pineapple
Prepare sauce by combining all three ingredients and whisking them together. Toss fruit with the sauce, refrigerate for an hour, serve. By the way, you can add any fruit you like. I didn't include blueberries because they are often pretty expensive. If you find a good deal, toss them babies in there!!
