Pudding-Topped Fruit Salad

My sister shared this recipe with me. She served the fruit in wine goblets, topped with the pudding. For large groups, serve it in a big salad bowl. Either way, it's refreshing and delicious. -Michelle Masciarelli, Torrington, Connecticut

    I took this to a dinner tonight and brought home a nearly empty bowl. I used sugar free pudding and added a few more strawberries and blueberries but no other changes. I added some cut strawberries to the top for serving. This is a delicious salad and could even be served for dessert. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

    I think the "boiled egg" is the sliced banana. Hope this helps :)

     This makes me think of Thanksgiving and Christmas entertaining, providing a less rich alternative to the usual desserts...It looks WONDERFUL! I wonder if thawed fruit, such as strawberries, could be used, in the topping, using the saved juice, to make it pink coloured, maybe using sugar free pudding, fat free (flavoured) yogurt.......   ViolaB
