I am always looking for quick and easy recipes and this one only took me about fifteen minutes to put it all together. Slicing the apples probably took the most time. I served it for lunch with our homemade pizza.
1 30oz Can Mixed Fruit - drained
1 20oz Can Pineapple Tidbits or Crushed - Drain but reserve 1 cup liquid
1 10oz Jar Maraschino Cherries w/out stems - Cut in half
2 Apples - any variety - Diced
1 Cup Pineapple Juice
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1 Small Box Instant Vanilla Pudding
Optional: 1 Cup Small Marshmallows or 1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut
Drain all fruit, reserving 1 cup of the pineapple liquid. In a large bowl mix sour cream, pineapple juice and vanilla pudding. Stir until blended well. To the pudding mixture add mixed fruit, pineapple, cherries, apples and any additions. Stir until mixed. Chill and serve.
I happened to have some small marshmallows so I added those. Orange juice can also be substituted for the pineapple juice. The best part about this recipe is that you can use different types of fruit. So be creative!
