Anyway, about 10 years ago, my mom taught a weeknight homemaking class at our church for the women to attend. She shared some great salad recipes, whipping up some of our family favorites for all to try. Then she gave out a little plastic bound booklet of several typed-up salad recipes. I still have my copy! It's binding has broken off and has several stains on it, but it is my go-to salad recipe book.
MOM'S SUNDAY FRUIT SALAD:
Printable Version HERE
- 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 3 Tbsp. orange juice
- 6 Tbsp. pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 pint whipping cream
- any fruit and add-ins (such as marshmallows or coconut)
- Mix cornstarch, sugar, and salt in small saucepan. Add juices and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Cool.
- Whip cream and fold into cooked mixture. Stir in desired fruit and add-ins. ENJOY!!
*If using canned fruits, be sure they are well drained!
*I always add pineapple to my fruit salad and just use the juice from the can for the juice needed in the cooked sauce. I also do the same with mandarin oranges if I don't have orange juice on hand and it works fine!
*In the fruit salad photos: I added 1 can drained mandarin oranges, 1 drained can pineapple tidbits, about 1 cup sliced green grapes, 1 sliced peach, 1 carton fresh raspberries and then I added in 1 cup of mini marshallows and about 1/4 cup of shredded coconut. So yummy!
