#3_ Pistachio Fruit Salad

This is really an easy fruit salad to prepare, even a child can prepare it. I always serve this during holidays but you can serve it anytime you want. Its really good!

You'll need:
2 cans ( 16 oz ea.) fruit cocktail
1 (20 oz.) can pineapple tidbits
2 boxes (3.4 oz.ea.) instant Pistachio pudding mix
1 tub (12 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed

5 bananas (or more)

How to prepare the Salad:

1. Pour the fruit juices in a bowl and stir in the pudding mix.
2. Mix the fruit cocktail and the pineapple tidbits in to the pudding mixture.
3. Fold in the cool whip
4. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill for at least 2 hours.
5. Just before serving, peel and slice up the bananas and mix it with the salad.
How easy is that

For variations, you can add miniature marshmallows (it has to be the white marshmallows. I used pink ones one time and the color was a disaster). You can also add some coconuts or chopped walnuts or pecans. You can't really go wrong with this salad.
