|1 can||(20 ounce) chunk pineapple|
|2 tablespoons||Vinegar or lemon juice|
|½ pint||Whipping cream or medium size container of Cool Whip; (I use Cool Whip)|
|Fruit; bananas, seedless grapes, apples, oranges, berries*|
|1||Bag miniature marshmellows; (may not use the whole bag, depending on preferences)|
This is a fourth generation handed down receipe. We call it Aunt Clara's Fruit Salad because my Great-Great Aunt Clara used to bring this to family functions.
*NOTE: - whatever is in season at the time. I usually put in two large bunches of green grapes, 4 large apples and 4 larger bananas plus whatever else I have on hand.
Drain juice from pineapple into 2 qt saucepan and heat juice until hot; wisk in vinegar/lemon juice and coarnstarch until smooth and very thick (like pudding.) Cool mixture. Put fruit (cut up in bite sized pieces) into serving bowl/container, add marshmellows and whipped cream/Cool Whip and gently stir to coat. Refrigerate until serving time. (Can coat apple and banana pieces in a little of the lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.)
Note: This is my daughters' favorite salad which I am 'required' to bring to all family functions such as Christmas and Easter get-togethers. It can make a large salad if you add lots of fruit - if I need a larger salad, I usually use a larger container of Cool Whip.
