Great fruit salad!! Loved the thick 'custard' mix and the combo of fruit. I didn't have red grapes so doubled the green. Made for a brunch and everyone loved it. Made for 2012 Spring PAC.
I was looking for a recipe that a friend gave my mom long ago, for butterfly fruit salad. You actually had to make a custard, and some other ingredients were very hard to find. I tried this, and my fruit salad loving family loved it! I've made it several times, with a variety of fresh and canned fruits, and it's always wonderful!
I made this for thanksgiving dinner. I've been craving my grandmother's fruit salad. The first time since she passed. This came very close to it, but with a little adding of fruit on my part, it came as close it as possible. I think it would have been it, if grandma had been the one to make it. ;) Instead of adding red grapes ( I didn't have any) I added apples, and bananas. It went over great at my in-laws, and even my two older picky eaters loved it. Even got a couple of neighbor kids to eat some the day after. So I will make again.
I used this recipe omitting green grapes and added apples and some bananas.crowd pleaser.very good(and I usually dislike greatly fruit salads of any kind)will make again!
