Un-Recipe Files - Vanilla Fruit Salad

IMG_5836-001

They say life is all about simple pleasures.  I have to agree with that.  One of my favorite simple pleasures is a good fruit salad.  How great is it to have a big bowl of ripe fruit all clean and cut for you?  It is even better if it is the perfect proportions of produce.  I get so annoyed when you are at a restaurant and they give you 1 strawberry, 4 grapes and a few pieces of tasteless honeydew.  Bleh.

I am perfectly pleased with straight up fruit but this salad has a vanilla sauce that adds a nice sweetness and makes it a little extra special.  There is no real recipe for this salad.  I drained the juice from a can of peaches and a can of pineapple chunks into a large bowl.  Next, I whisked in about half a package of vanilla instant pudding.  Then, gently fold in the fruit.  I used strawberries, grapes, blueberries, and the canned pineapple and peaches.  It was so delicious. 

The next day I added more fruit and there was still plenty of sauce to coat another batch.  Delicious!
