  • In a medium bowl, mix together pineapple, strawberries, peaches, a heaping cup of the cold rice, raisins and coconut. Set aside.

  • In a separate large bowl, whip together cream, sugar, vanilla, ginger and salt until stiff. Fold in rice mixture, and stir in 1/4 cup slivered almonds.

  • Spoon mixture onto lettuce leaf beds, and sprinkle each portion with 1/4 cup sliced almonds.

Cook's Note:

This salad is delicious made with either white or brown rice. You may substitute pears for the peaches, as well.

A very "Tasty" dish, light and refreshing. Adding ginger to the whipcream creats a unique delight to the taste buds. A must for any summertime "Pot-Luck" dish. Read More

I added fresh blueberries and left the raisins out. This salad was great - I will add even more fruit next time! It would also be good in the winter with canned and/or frozen fruits. Read More

Warning: makes A LOT as presented. It says serves 6, but it serves closer to twelve. Unless you're taking it to a pot luck, I recommend halving or even quartering the amounts. Otherwise, VERY tasty and fun textures too. Read More

I have made frog-eye salad for every family dinner for the past decade. This time I made this instead, and everyone loved it! I left out the almonds, but added a little almond extract, and used cool whip and left out the sugar. Being January, I had to use what I had frozen, so there were raspberries and blueberries, with no peaches. Finally, I cooked the rice in the pineapple juice from the can and some coconut milk. Very delicious salad, this will be a new staple! Read More

I brought this to a dessert potluck and it was a huge hit-- probably because it's delicious without being full of chocolate and sugar. It's very light (rich desserts aren't my thing) and easy to make. Read More

I am vegan so I altered this a little. I made half the recipe. I used cold leftover Jasmine rice (from last nights dinner when I make rice I always make extra to store for future meals) I did not have peaches so I used an apricot I also subbed regular raisins for golden raisins. The biggest thing I changed was using Almond milk instead of heavy cream I used raw sugar instead of white. The almond milk did not thicken as heavy cream would have so I just added extra rice. I made a bed of Artisan lettuce spooned some rice salad on top and topped with pine nuts instead of more almonds. Delicious!! Read More
