Super Easy Pudding Salad

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.

  1. If you haven’t tryed this salad you will love it. It will last for 5 days. One can of cherry pie filling. Add any fruit. You will love it.

  2. I usually have vanilla yogurt and a couple cans of tropical fruit on hand. Drain the fruit well, you can also add extra fruit to go with it, and add a little yogurt. So good
