Fruity Rice Delight

Made  times

"Cooked rice, fruit and whipped topping -- sounds strange, tastes great! Adjust the ingredients to taste. The finished dish should be the consistency of pudding. Try adding pecans and walnuts. At Christmas I put a few drops of food coloring in the whipped topping."

  1. In a medium saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, blend 1/2 the fruit cocktail and the whipped cream. Drain any remaining fluid from the rice and mix 1/2 into the bowl. Continue mixing in the remaining fruit cocktail and rice until the desired consistency has been attained.



I just made this to take to a party. There seemed to be too much whipped topping so I'm just adding more fruit w/juice for sweetness and rice. Pretty good for a quick easy rice salad!

This has been a staple in our house as a special dessert with dinner night since I was a kid in the 80's. Instead of fruit cocktail my Grandmother used just diced maraschino cherries to make it...
