This is an easy, fat free and refreshing fruit salad. My kids gobbled it up just as quickly as the kind I usually make with whipped cream. Except this time, everything was extremely good for them. The sauce is fat free yogurt with raw cane sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, chia seeds and mint. Makes eating healthier not so bad. :)
Total Time: About 30 minutes
Yield: About 8 side dish servings

Early in the day or the night before, gently mix the pineapple and oranges with the dry pudding. Chill. Before serving, add the apple, banana and other fruits. Chill for an hour if you like but it's not necessary, unless you want chilled apples and bananas.

This is a salad my mom used to make all the time when I was growing up. It tastes good and is great for any occasion! It's been used over and over again in our home.
This is a simple fruit salad with no extras - it doesn't need any extras!

Super easy, fruity and delicious!

My husband loves this simple and healthy treat! Right now we have extra grapefruit, oranges, and bananas on hand, but it's whatever fruit you would like.
My mother and I were talking about a recipe she used to make for the holidays years ago, but she has no idea were the recipe is. Can anyone help?
This uses up my left over spaghetti noodles. In a saucepan, combine sugar, eggs, lemon juice and salt; cook on medium heat (about 4 minutes). Cool completely.
I love the combination of fruits plus the slivered almonds in this salad.
I love the combination of cherry pie filling with pineapple! This is great salad. So easy to make and not overly expensive.
This is a great salad with a great combination of ingredients!
My mom used to make this on special summer occasions. You can't get any easier or any tastier than this!
Mix honey, limeade concentrate, and poppy seed in medium bowl. Carefully toss fruit with honey mixture. Sprinkle with almonds.

My parents went on a weekend get-away when I was a teenager, and were served this dish in the restaurant at their hotel. Upon returning home, my mother re-created it and it is delicious!
Mix all ingredients and garnish with the maraschino cherries.
Mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Keep leftovers refrigerated.
To add more "zing" to a simple fruit salad, substitute regular whipped topping with the flavored kinds like strawberry or french vanilla. And to add more nutrition, use flavored fruit yogurts instead of whipped topping.
A delicious alternative to store bought fruit cups. They would be great as a dessert or a special snack for your kids on a hot day.
To make a fresh fruit cup taste and look somewhat special add a little grenadine syrup to your cut up fresh fruit and toss lightly. Sprinkle the top with some toasted coconut. This is good for breakfast, a snack, or an evening dessert. It's so simple yet so pretty and tasty. Happy eating!

This is a recipe from my husband's family that is really easy to put together.
In a large bowl, mix together a small carton of Cool Whip with a small package of Instant Vanilla Pudding and juice that was drained from a can of pineapple chunks. Add the pineapple chunks and whatever other fruit you enjoy, apples, pears, mandarin oranges, grapes etc.
We've tried it with several different combinations of fruit and it always tastes great.
I have made this recipe for many potlucks. I made it for a staff/volunteer meeting where I volunteer. The boss of the agency asked for the recipe. The original recipe used strawberries. I changed that to canned cherry pie filling. Put the cherries in bowl, 'juice' and all. Add one can pineapple chunks, drained, reserve the juice. Add one can of drained mandarin oranges and 2 bananas sliced. Mix together. If a little more liquid is needed, use some of the pineapple liquid. Need to be able to coat the bananas so they don't turn color. I usually drain the pineapple into the pie filling can, to mix it with the cherry sauce left in the can. Variations, use just cherry pie filling, bananas, and blueberries (fresh) for 4th of July. Can add or delete fruits according to personal taste. Can pitch the leftover 'juice', or drink it, or use it in jello.
I make the cool whip, vanilla pudding and crushed pineapple and serve it over angel food cake. It is wonderful!!
