I love fruit salad of any kind but in the winter it can be hard (and expensive) to find enough fresh fruit for a nice salad. I like this recipe because it uses canned fruit and bananas and apples which I can get all year round.
This salad is very easy to make and it makes quite a bit and keeps for a few days in the refrigerator or until the bananas start to turn brown. When I made it, I had lots of creamy part and actually did not use all of it so I think it would be safe to say that doubling up on your favorite fruits would be fine but don’t be surprised if you have too much creamy part.
The recipe came from Allrecipes.
Creamy Orange Fruit Salad
1 (20 oz) can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 (16 oz) can peach slices, drained
1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
2 bananas, sliced
1 apple, chopped
1 small box instant vanilla pudding (I used sugar free)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup orange juice concentrate, defrosted
3/4 cup sour cream
In a large bowl, combine the fruits and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat pudding mix, milk and orange juice concentrate for 2 minutes. Add sour cream and mix well.
Spoon mixture over the fruit and toss gently making sure all the fruit is coated.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
Makes 8-10 servings
