Frog Eye Salad

Frog Eyes Salad. Trust me, the gross name of this dish does not hold a candle in comparison to how yummy this sweet side dish is. I have to thank my aunt Nancy for this recipe. She brought it to a neighborhood potluck and everyone was asking for the recipe, and telling her she can never come back over without this in tow. The combination of fruit, little pasta bites, and whipped cream are the perfect combination on a warm summer day.

Frog Eye Salad


Ingredients:

  • 1 package Pecini pasta
  • 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks
  • 1 can of mandarin oranges, drained
  • 2 pkg. instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 regular tub of whipped cream
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 jar of maraschino cherries
Boil water in a large stock pot and cook the pasta for about 20 minutes. Once done, drain the pasta in colander and wash with cold water to reduce the starchiness.

In a large bowl combine the instant pudding powder, the pineapple with juices, oranges, and mix well to combine. Then add 2/3 of the tub of whipped cream. Mix well. Fold in pasta and marshmallows until combined. Top with cherries and serve.
