Fruit Salad

A new year means a fresh start. This year we hope to eat out less often and have more fruits and veggies. We thought we would start the year out with a fruit salad.

2 refrigerated vanilla pudding cups
1 1/2 cups frozen (thawed) whipped topping
1 cup seedless grapes, halved
11 oz mandarin orange segments, drained
10 oz pineapple tidbits in juice, drained
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced

1. In medium bowl, mix pudding, and whipped topping.
2. Gently stir in oranges and pineapples. Add grapes and strawberries; toss gently to coat. Refrigerate until chilled before serving.
3. Serve topped with miniature marshmallows or chopped walnuts.

  5. Yum this looks so good, and you've put all my favourite fruits in it! I don't eat vanilla pudding, but I wonder if you could use Greek yogurt with a bit of vanilla extract? Either way, delish creation :)
