This was my grandma's fruit salad recipe and I know her church featured it in their cookbook. Every Holiday and every party it was a hit. It's the most amazing fruit salad ever. My grandma added kiwi and green grapes as well. If your looking for a delicious fruit salad to make for any occasion, this is definitely the one!
I was intrigued by the use of Tang (I didn't know they still made it) and decided to try this, and I'm glad I did! This was a big hit---my DD said it was like biting into a big juicy orange! I was a little leery about using 3 tablespoons of Tang so I cut it back to 2 tablespoons and that was "tangy" enough for me! Thanks for a great recipe!
This is from a church cookbook. It sounds like it would be different with the use of TANG. I loved TANG as a kid, so did my kids. I haven't bought TANG in years, but might have to make an exception and buy a jar to try this. Note: the original recipe did not say what size can of pineapple, I'm just guessing a size so you can use your own judgement there. This is a recipe you could add or omit any fruit you like, or it would work with canned fruit coctail instead of the fruits.
