There is a gal at church (Sandee) who brings this fruit salad to most of our parties, and it's where I head first in the food line. She was gracious enough to share her recipe with me. I love it, and it's so easy to make.
Mix 1 container of light cool whip, one 3.4 oz package of fat free/sugar free instant vanilla pudding. Add 1 6 oz can of chunked pineapple with the juice, 1 10 oz jar of maraschino cherries, drained, 1 c. mini marshmallows, 1 8 oz can of Mandarin oranges, drained, 1 c. walnuts, chopped, 2 green apples, peeled, and cored, and 1 green apple, peeled and cored. Serve cool.
As for the orange bowl, I carved the top like a pumpkin, removed the innards with a melon scoop, and made these my serving dishes. I like 'em. I made this months ago, and saved the picture until...whenever. This would be cut with a little carved pumpkin face (I've seen this done before), or a drawn pumpkin face. But really, who cares if it's cute, it's delicious, and that's how I pick a meal! Oh wait...I do care, I care deeply if it's cute, but....I didn't think about it until later....as I started seeing pumpkins pop up at the store.
