I have served this at several luncheons and have had request for the recipe at every one. Blueberries are also good.
I wasn't able to fine the pasta it calls for so I used orzo pasta. I also added a larger can of crushed pineapple and more strawberries than called for. My family loves this recipe!!!! You can use your imagination on what all other fruits you can use in this recipe. I think this salad is addictive and have made it several times in the last two weeks.(it don't last long) with my family eating it!!!!!!!!!! A+++++++++
I've made this recipe for several years. You can also exchange one can of pineapple for one can of fruit cocktail. You can also add some mini-marshmellows which add to it's lightness. This is an excellent dish for groups - family gatherings - picnics. Very light and enjoyable. Absolutely delicious!

I also make my mixture like Stephanie L Beck, this is a request from my kids when they come to visit! Also a winner at pot luck dinners! Been making this for over 25 years.
Similar to a recipe my husband's family makes (now I make it too) that uses rosemarino (orzo) pasta and marachino cherries rather than strawberries. Difference is the cooked pasta has to absorb the mixture overnight before folding in the whipped topping and fruit. But I am guessing they come out about the same. It's a delicious, light, refreshing dessert salald.
Fancy fruit salad is tasty and incredibly easy to make. My family simply loves it and my kids make it any time they can. It's a keeper and definitely going in my recipe box.
