this is really good! i just made it today and its delicious. However, I recommend that you make the pudding with the canned juice in a separate bowl. Then in another bowl add all the fruit. I added only a couple of scoops of the pudding to the fruit and stirred it to give it just a little coat of pudding around the fruit and it was perfect. Next time I'll buy a smaller pudding box because I hardly used any, I think it's too much if I were to add the whole thing. Oh and I used green grapes because it looks so much prettier with a pop of green instead of red because you already have strawberries!

Delicious. I used canned peaches in water to cut back on the sugar.

Home run! I followed the concept...fruit and read the reviews to determine how to best make the pudding. The result....a home run! I bought a slew of fresh fruit (nectarine, plum, pear, pineapple, apple, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, tangerine, peach, strawberry)...theme was color. Used instant fat free vanilla pudding....w fat free milk. Lightly coated fruit. note: squeeze 1 tangerine over the cut apples & pears so they don't turn brown. Also, dont apply pudding until the day you eat it.

This fruit salad was soooo yummy; and because of the fruit in this salad it was so quick to prepare too... will definitely be made again!
I was a bit wary of getting "soup" so I used the juice from the peaches and only half the juice from the pineapples and it was just right. I did omit the bananas (allergy) and didnt add the sugar and it was superb.

This is the bomb! Fantastic, made it for my son's and stb dil wedding rehearsal and the wedding reception. Came out great! I was told that I am the official Fruit Salad maker for the family functions now and not to forget birthdays. I did use splenda and sugar free pudding due to health issues of some of the party but it didn't do no harm. Thank you!

Used can of sliced peaches, can of sliced pears, blueberries, banana, sweet cherries, and cantaloupe. The sweet cherries were a mistake - turned it all a lovely shade of purple. Used 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup cornstarch in place of pudding mix.

Good recipe, although a bit soupy, even though I only used the juice from one 15 oz can of peaches. I added some extra fruit--extra banana and an apple to soak up some of the juice. Good made a few hours beforehand, but wouldn't make it up a day in advance. Thanks for posting--will use again!

Took this to a 4th of July, MARYLAND steamed crab cook-out. Several gals identified this immediately -- certainly easy, but WAAAY too sweet - and I didn't add any sugar ! When I do again, will add some lemon juice to the liquid, hoping to counteract that. Thanks for posting !
