    LAURIE's Note:

    DD#2 needed a quick, light "something" to take to a picnic an hour after she got home from work. I remembered reading a salad recipe with a package of pudding added so I opened the cupboard and started draining and dumping. She came home with an empty bowl and requested I make more for home. That's a good sign I think! (Cooking time is for refrigeration)

      UPDATE: I made this again using off-brand pineapple that had more juice and less pineapple, and it was HORRIBLE. Runny and tasteless. You MUST use Dole pineapple chunks in HEAVY SYRUP and dry the cherries and mandarin orange slices thoroughly or this won't be a good recipe.<br/>Original review: This is heavenly! Everyone LOVED it! The bowl was scraped clean! I will quadruple this recipe next time for a crowd. It is my new favorite fruit salad....DELICIOUS! I used the pineapple chunks in heavy syrup which made a difference, I think.

      This was just OK for me. Probably would not make again.

      Great fruit salad! My family just gobbled it up! The second time I made this I added about 1/2 C coconut. Yum!
