Fresh, fruity flavor makes this pretty salad popular with all ages. Our whole family really digs into its fluffy goodness. I can put it together in the morning or even the night before and pop it in the fridge until suppertime. —Denise Nebel, Wayland, Iowa

"I had the chance to make this salad just this past month and I'd used the tapioca pudding mix which was just "Cook & Serve". I simply followed this recipe as it was presented and it worked out very well! This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing!

"Wonderful! Couldn't find the tapioca so I substituted Instant Coconut Pudding. It gave it an extra tropical boost!"

"This is a Thanksgiving favorite in my family. However, I haven't been able to find tapioca pudding mix in years. I use 3 Tbsp tapioca and 1/3 cup sugar. I'm wondering if there are other suggestions?"

"This is a family favorite! My Husband gets so excited when he sees this on the table! It reminds us of Orange Dreamsicles. So fresh and creamy and great for summer time. I used Kraft Minute Tapioca as well and it turned out perfect!"

"Mine turned out runny and never set up. Does anyone know why? I used all brand-name products and no generics. I made sure everything was drained thoroughly. I was disappointed by the outcome."
