Okay, we all have a fruit salad recipe, right? Well, let me share with you my family recipe for fruit salad. No need for expensive ingredients. All you need are these very simple ingredients, and I promise you that you will have the best salad today! My Grandma taught me this recipe when I was just a little kid. It’s probably the reason why I love fruits and veggies growing up. Somehow, I did not feel intimidated by them. Most kids my age were frightened to eat healthy foods, but no me. All thanks to my Grams! I have listed all the ingredients and directions so all you have to do is to follow them step by step and you are good to go! Feel free to add more fruits to this recipe if you prefer as long as you think they will go well with the rest, just give it a go! Anyway, have a wonderful day, friends. I hope you are all well today. Enjoy!


1 can(s) pineapple chunks, in their juice, 20 ounces 1 can(s)

mandarin oranges, drained, 15 oz.

1 bunch green grapes, halved, about 3/4 lb.

2 bananas

1 package strawberries, sliced however you want, 16 oz. 1 box

small box of vanilla instant pudding (Jell-o brand only – others just don’t taste right), 3.4 oz

you can also add other fruits that you like to this as you please.


Empty the can of pineapple into a mixing bowl.

Add pudding mix and stir until well blended.

Add the drained mandarin oranges, then stir until well combined.

Add more fruits and stir until well combined.

Place the bowl inside the fridge to chill for a few minutes. Make sure not too much chilling time or else the bananas will turn dark.

Serve cold and enjoy!
