Anyone ever made this??? I want to try it but I dont want to use canned fruit! I would rather use fresh melons and strawberry.

1 (29 ounce) can peach slices, undrained
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, undrained
1 (3 1/8 ounce) box dry vanilla instant pudding mix
1 lb strawberry, stemmed and quartered
1 banana, sliced
1/2 pint blueberries
1 bunch grapes (I use the red ones)
1 -2 tablespoon sugar (optional)

Directions:

1
In a large bowl, combine peaches, pineapples, and vanilla pudding mix.
2
This includes the juices from the cans.
3
Mix well until pudding is dissolved.
4
Stir in strawberries, banana, blueberries, grapes, and sugar if desired.
5
Chill.

I've not made that. I just cut up a bunch of different fruit, I don't add anything.

 You could probably substitute other fruit juice. I've never tried this version though.

I made this once, I guess the secret is the pudding. Yes, I took it to work and got compliments on it!

I'd never think of putting pudding in my fruit salad.  Interesting!

 I have made it. It wouldn't work with just melon and strawberries. The dry pudding mix combines with the juices in the canned fruit to make the dressing. I've used different fresh fruits added to canned fruit, and it's very good.
