Fish Eye Salad (tapioca Fruit Salad)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Pamela

This recipe is from my Mother in Law. My brother in law told my kids not to eat grandma's salad because it was made with fish eyes!! It took them a while to convince them that there were no fish eyes in the salad and now they love this treat. They even request it by asking for the Fish Eye Salad--hence the name! Prep time does not include the overnight soaking of the tapioca

Do I boil the milk first before adding in the drained tapioca?
