An easy Five Minute Fruit Salad makes the perfect dessert for any occasion. It only takes six ingredients to create this no-bake, light and airy treat. Whether your stretched for time or need a dessert to feed a crowd – this will surely be a hit!
I’ve been craving desserts lately. Sometimes I don’t have the patience to make a pie crust from scratch or the energy to mix together cookie dough.
After browsing through the grocery store deli, I spotted ambrosia salad. I remembered how delicious the various fruits and cool whip were together. During the holidays, someone would always bring an extra large bowl of this wonderful dessert. That got me thinking. These kinds of salads are super easy to make and last in the fridge for days. It was time to put together my own recipe.
Pistachio is one of my favorite flavors of ice cream. So naturally, I was going to use Pistachio instant pudding for my fruit salad.
Once you stir together the DRY pudding mix into the crushed pineapple, its time to add in the remaining ingredients.
Next, add in the chunk pineapple, fruit cocktail, mandarin oranges and Cool Whip. Wa La…you have yourself a Five Minute Fruit Salad!
You can make this fruit salad ahead of time to let the flavors blend, but it can be made and used immediately if unexpected guests arrive. Doubles or triples well if you need large quantities.
