The canned fruit needs to be completely dry, so recommend starting this 2 days in advance – draining the fruit overnight on the first day.
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
1 (3 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding
1 3⁄4 cups milk
1 (8 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained DRY (very important)
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained DRY
1 cup green grape, halved
1 cup red grapes, halved
1⁄2 cup maraschino cherry
1⁄2 cup marshmallows
On the day before you need the salad, whip the cream. You can sweeten it with a bit of sugar if desired, but it’s not needed.
Mix the pudding mix and milk together until thick.
Fold the whipped cream and pudding together.
Fold the fruits and marshmallows into the cream and pudding mixture.
