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!
