Luau Fruit Salad

by Laura

Today, I am sharing a recipe for Luau Fruit Salad. My mom actually got this recipe from a local grocery store. They were having Hawaiian Days one week and were sampling and sharing this salad recipe.

I have altered the amount of ingredients a little bit from the original recipe. I also think you could leave all the fruit and and use the base as a fruit dip for fresh fruit. Yummy!

Loved this recipe. I added about 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows to the pudding, then mixed in the fruit. Delicious!!

Found your recipe when searching for a salad to take to a Luau birthday party. It looks wonderful. However, I do have one question. Do you drain the can of mandarin oranges?

Came across your recipe while searching for a fruit salad for my mom’s wedding reception a couple of weeks ago. This is soooo good! I had everyone asking for the recipe. Just made it again tonight as I’ve been craving. Thanks for sharing it. So simple and sooo delicious! : )
