Let me first add the disclaimer that I know this picture is not the greatest. That being said, it looked much better in real life and tasted great! It is really easy and tastes very light and refreshing. It's one of those salads that you can whip up really quickly and then make the rest of your meal--my kind of salad. I am always looking for quick, flavorful side dishes and this one did not disappoint in any way. I loved the combination of fruit and the vanilla pudding added just the right amount of sweetness. I'll for sure be making this one again!
Fresh Fruit Salad from "Worldwide Ward Cookbook"
1-2 C strawberries, sliced
1-2 C seedless grapes
3 bananas, sliced
1 8-oz can mandarin oranges, drained
1 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
1 3/4 C milk
Place fruit in a large bowl (any assorted fruit may be used--grapes, bananas, and strawberries are my favorite). Add drained oranges. In a separate bowl, combine pudding with milk. Whisk well. Pour the pudding over the fruit and stir. Refrigerate for about an hour. Stir before serving.
