This recipe sounded good but it wasn't. The combination of the pineapple, oranges and their juices along with the lemon pudding produced a bitter acidic tang on your tongue. I was disappointed because it sounded like a very fresh combo. Everyone in my family said the same thing. I'm glad I tried it out before I took along to Thanksgiving at my mother-in-laws! Read More

I was sceptical after reading some of the reviews. However I prepared this but omitted the nuts and I used the pineapple chunks that are in their own juice (no sugar added). My family really liked it. My husband did request that I add more bananas in the future. Read More

I prepared the pudding mix with 1 cup milk and 1 cup whipped cream instead of the fruit juices to make a thicker salad. This is nicely sweet. Nuts add a good crunch. Read More

What a mystery! Tried this recipe out on my beach buddies total consensus was what is this missing? too sweet all you can taste is the lemon pudding. Adding whip cream might help. Read More

I had no lemon pudding mix and from the sound of the reviews I'm glad i didn't. instead I used sugar free cheesecake pudding mix some grated lemon zest and the juice of 1 lemon alomg with just the pineapple juice from pineapple tidbits. My family liked the flavor but thought it was too loose. I agree with another reviewer that it would be better with Cool Whip or whip cream folded into it. All in all it was good and a change from my usual fruit salad. Read More

This recipe is really good. When I make it I omit the nuts and use cheesecake flavored pudding. Makes a big difference. Read More

This recipe is the same thing my mother used to make in the 70's during the Tang craze! The only differnce in the two is instead of the lemon pudding mix use 1/2 cup Tang was a childhood fav I had forgotten about. Read More

I made this for dinner. I left out the bananas and added very small blocks of cheddar cheese. Was delicious. My Mom used to make a similar recipe with just pineapple cheese and marshmallows. Very tasty. Read More
