The Kids Cook Monday - Ambrosia Fruit Salad
This is actually one of my favorite recipes and I needed a dish for a Christmas potluck this weekend. It became the perfect idea for The Kids Cook Monday!
Ambrosia Fruit Salad:
1 package orzo pasta, cooked & cooled
1 can crushed pineapple
1 can mandarin oranges
1 jar maraschino cherries
1 container whipped topping
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
Drain pineapple, reserve juice.
Add eggs (beaten), sugar, and cornstarch to pineapple juice
Bring to boil cooking till thickened.
Combine orzo, fruit (drain cherries & oranges, and pineapple mixture.
Refrigerate, preferably overnight.
Mix in whipped topping, refrigerate until served.
