Sunshine Salad


1 can (20 oz) pineapple tidbits
1 can (11 oz) mandarin oranges
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding
1 c. quartered strawberries
1 c. sliced bananas
1 c. Blueberries

1. Drain pineapple and oranges. RESERVING liquid. I type this in all caps because my mom pretty much yelled at me to listen to this step when she was giving me the recipe over the phone. I have a wonderful nack for not reading the recipe all the way through and skipping steps :) My mom also gave me her little strainer to use for this recipe which is pictured. Isn't she the most fantastic mom ever?? I think I might have to purchase one of these!

2. Prepare the pudding with the reserved liquid instead of the milk the pudding calls for. My pudding box said 2 c. milk but I only had about 1 - 1 1/2 c. liquid and this was still plenty!
3. Combine pineapple, strawberries and oranges and gently fold in pudding.

4. Add bananas and blueberries right before serving.
