I made some fruit salad today!

I just took some canned fruits we had left over in our cupboards, some fruit c***tail and mandarin oranges, then added an apple, a banana, and some mini marshmallows, threw in some cool whip, and voila! fruit salad!! I feel silly for not realizing it was so simple before. It was a great treat for my kids and my 6-year-old just LOVED it! Thanks to all again for your great recipes!

Here is a salad that we like called Delicious Salad
1 pound Black grapes
1 small can Mandarin Oranges
1 can Pineapple chunks
6 ounce Marshmallows
Drain all of the above well
Blend in pan:
2 Tablespoons Pineapple Juice
1 Tablespoon Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Egg yolks
Cook above mixture until thick (If it does not thicken put in little cornstarch) and add 1 cup Cool Whip. When cool add this to the first mixture. Enjoy.
Have a great Day!

This idea doesn't use whipped topping and in fact isn't a recipe per se'. I just wanted to offer this as an alternative for a hot summer day. A friend years ago made this and brought it to a salad luncheon and it was wooonderfullll.

Make a fruit salad (preferably with fresh fruit but canned should work too) then mix it with a few (4 or so) Tablespoons of Cointreu liquer. Add more according to taste if desired. You simply won't believe how the flavors "pop" by adding this. This makes a good fruit salad an absolutely fabulous fruit salad!

The best ambrosia salad that I had cotained, sourcream, canned fruit, marshmallows and I believe some mandarin oranges. The ambrosia was heated on the stove and served warm. It was excellent because the marshmallows were melted. Yum.
