This quick and delicious fruit salad recipe was shared with me by a blogging fan, Linda Silvernail. (Thank you Linda!) I made this recipe often when my kids were young. It’s frugal also.
I love that you can use sugar free pudding along with no sugar added fruit, for a special taste treat for those having to watch their sugar intake.
I suggest slightly draining all the fruit for a thicker result. You can always add more juice, but it does thicken as it sets up.
