I thought I saw an easy fruit salad recipe that uses dry pudding mix and various canned fruit. Anyone have that? TIA

Canned and fresh fruit are mixed into a lovely orange cream concoction made form vanilla pudding, milk, orange concentrate and sour cream. After a few hours in the refrigerator, it 's ready to be spooned out and enjoyed.

I think I know the one you're talking about; I used to make it 25 years ago when a woman at my work brought it to a potluck. The only thing I remember was it had vanilla instant pudding mix and canned mandarin oranges and cool whip but I lost the recipe and can't remember the rest. If you find it somewhere, I'd love to have it again too - I was so surprised it wasn't on this site. It seemed to be one of those "classic" potluck dishes. Good luck!

Mine uses a can peach filling,1 box instant vanilla pudding mix, pineapple chunks=plus liquid,a box of strawberries,mandarin oranges 1 can, nuts and coconut.Take liquid from all and make pudding.Add everything together. You can use any canned fruit you wish.

Pineapple juice is stirred into vanilla pudding mix and then the fruit - pineapple chunks, cherries and mandarin oranges - are stirred into that. Chill and serve with sliced bananas.
