24 Hour Fruit Salad

24 Hour Fruit Salad created by AZPARZYCH

This is a wonderful salad that is easily adaptable, and can be served as a salad with a holiday meal or as a dessert. The original recipe called for canned fruit cocktail, but I have modified it from that. I'm also allergic to pineapple, so I either pick it out or substitute more of the other fruits instead. All the fruits are really to taste. I could eat myself sick on this stuff, it is so good.

ingredients

directions

  • The canned fruit needs to be completely dry, so recommend starting this 2 days in advance - draining the fruit overnight on the first day.
  • On the day before you need the salad, whip the cream. You can sweeten it with a bit of sugar if desired, but it's not needed.
  • Mix the pudding mix and milk together until thick.
  • Fold the whipped cream and pudding together.
  • Fold the fruits and marshmallows into the cream and pudding mixture.
  • Refrigerate overnight.

    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.
