Mom's Sunday Fruit Salad

This recipe is a family favorite my mom prepared often. Mostly to go with our big Sunday dinners {hence the name!} but you can make it any day of the week!
Author: Jenn


  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup granulated 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 pineapple tidbits, grapes, rasperries, peaches, 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!
Adding pineapple to fruit salad and using the juice from the can for the juice needed in the cooked sauce is great. Also do the same with canned mandarin oranges.
*In the fruit salad photos: There is 1 can drained mandarin oranges, 1 drained can pineapple tidbits, about 1 cup sliced green grapes, 1 sliced peach, 1 carton fresh raspberries, 1 cup mini marshallows and 1/4 cup of shredded coconut.*
