This is a fourth generation handed down receipe. We call it Aunt
Clara's Fruit Salad because my Great-Great Aunt Clara used to bring
this to family functions.
*NOTE: - whatever is in season at the time. I usually put in two large
bunches of green grapes, 4 large apples and 4 larger bananas plus
whatever else I have on hand.
Drain juice from pineapple into 2 qt saucepan and heat juice until
hot; wisk in vinegar/lemon juice and coarnstarch until smooth and
very thick (like pudding.) Cool mixture. Put fruit (cut up in bite
sized pieces) into serving bowl/container, add marshmellows and
whipped cream/Cool Whip and gently stir to coat. Refrigerate until
serving time. (Can coat apple and banana pieces in a little of the
lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.)
Note: This is my daughters' favorite salad which I am 'required' to
bring to all family functions such as Christmas and Easter
get-togethers. It can make a large salad if you add lots of fruit -
if I need a larger salad, I usually use a larger container of Cool
