  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, crushed pineapple, and maraschino cherries to orzo.
  2. Combine juice from mandarin oranges, juice from pineapple chunks, juice from crushed pineapple, sugar, eggs, and flour in a saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring often, until sauce is thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and cool, about 30 minutes.
  3. Pour cooled sauce over orzo mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate until flavors blend, 8 hours to overnight. Fold whipped topping into orzo mixture before serving.

This is delicious! Been making this for many years. I got the same recipe from a neighbor. I will never change the ingredients. It's fine the way it is!

My brother LOVES this stuff. I made it more out of sentimentality than anything for Easter this year. It went over poorly with my husband's family. Texture was an issue. Flavor is sweet enough.

I love this fruit salad made just the way the recipe says. I think it would also make a very good dessert since it is sweet and light. More kinds of fruit could be added also, but it is so goo...

I liked this very much, but did cut it down to a smaller scale. After cooking orzo, I put cooked orzo in a bowl and added juice to orzo without heating and allowed the juice to absorb into orzo...

Very good,but...The amount the recipe makes is HUGE! If you want an amount for a one time dinner, try to scale it down. We had a ton leftover.

Perfect summer dish!

I like this recipe, but do not like how the egg whites clump up in the sauce.

I did not care for this recipe.

Have been making this for years, it does make a large amount! I usually cut it in half for just family!
