A unique, delicious fruit salad. It is always a hit and can be served year round, from Easter to Thanksgiving. It also goes great on angel food cake! The marshmallows soak up the juice and flavor and are so good! You can add seasonal fruit you have on hand! I usually chill in the fridge 30 min before serving to let the marshmallows soak up the juice!

I did not have instant lemon pudding but I did have instant cheesecake pudding. I used that instead. I did add in one more cup of chopped strawberries and two more chopped kiwi. This is a very nice fluffy salad--the kids and I loved it........I can't stop eating it. This is even better if it sits overnight if you can wait that long to dig into it. Read More

This is very good. It maybe had a few too many marshmallows but that didn't keep me from getting a second helping. I also liked putting just a bit of whipped cream on top. DH is allergic to kiwi so I had to leave that out. Kiwi would have added a nice bit of color to it though. Read More
