GLORIFIED "RICE" SALAD

I hadn't made this in years until last month for our 'Christmas in July' party for our ladies group. The last time was in the early 80's that I had it. I didn't have enough rice so I improvised. It was a big hit. I used orzo pasta. You can also use fresh fruits instead of canned. Mix it up to your liking.
