  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 14 ounce can pineapple tid-bits
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 or 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 4 Tbsp. mayonnaise


Assorted fresh fruit. I usually use the canned pineapple, two red apples, red or green grapes, bananas, or anything I have on hand.


Drain juice from pineapple and mix with egg, sugar and 2 Tbsp. cornstarch. Cook for approximately 6 minutes on medium heat or until thick. Let cool.

When ready to add to fruit, combine it with 4 Tbsp. mayonnaise and pour over fruit and stir.
