How to Make Fruit Salad to Die For

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour the pineapple, juice and all, into a bowl. Add the pudding mix and stir until creamy. Stir in the DRAINED mandarin oranges.
  2. Add additional fruit. Stir in completely until covered and creamy.
  3. Refrigerate the salad for a while until it is nice and chilled. Don't let it sit too long or the bananas will turn brown. You can also serve right after making this without chilling. Personally, it is much better chilled.
