It was short notice. There wasn’t much in the cupboard but I needed a salad to take to a potluck. hmmmm…what to make?? I knew the hostess was making scalloped potatoes and ham so I thought a macaroni salad wouldn’t be the best. A fruit or a veggie type salad sounded better. UGH. No veggies. I did have fruit though…I really don’t make many fruit salads-then I remembered. There was a recipe I made when I was on Weight Watchers years ago…now did I have vanilla pudding…YES!!
This salad is so easy to make and the best thing, I typically have all the ingredients.
Here’s the recipe.
Take a small box in instant vanilla pudding – Mix it up using 1 3/4 cups milk. You can use skim milk and sugar free pudding or you can use full strength-whatever your preference.
Once it sets up a bit add a large drained can of fruit cocktail mix, and whatever other fruit you have. I happened to have some blueberries, two red apples and a banana. Stir it up and you’re done. How easy-right?!?!
The salad is tasty and oh so easy-the only problem is that it typically is only good for a 24 hour period. I’m thinking next time I make this, it will be strawberry season and I can add those.
