Love this recipe! Pinched! A hint that I do when using fresh bananas in recipes, I cut them in a bowl first and add some fresh lemon and mix, then drain them and then add them to the recipe. it will slow down the browning.
1 can(s)pineapple chunks, in their own juice
1 can(s)mandarin oranges, drained
1 bunchgreen grapes, halved
1 pkgstrawberries, sliced however you want
1 boxsmall box of vanilla instant pudding (jell-o brand only – others just don’t taste right)
1you can also add other fruits that you like to this as you please.
Pour the pineapple, juice and all into a bowl. Add the pudding mix and stir until creamy.
Stir in the DRAINED mandarin oranges.
Add additional fruit and stir in completely until covered and creamy.
Refrigerate the salad for a while until it is nice and chilled.
Don’t let it sit to long or the banana’s will turn brown.
You can also serve right after making this without chilling.
Personally, it is much better chilled.
