Picnic Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is one My Mom
use to make while I was growing up.
Bursting with Orange and Pineapple
juice and fruit, makes this a
 family favorite. Everyone who try's it
ask's for the recipe. Perfect for week
night meals as well as pot luck dinners.

Picnic Fruit Salad
1 (6oz.) Cook and Serve Vanilla Pudding
1 (3oz.) Tapioca Vanilla Pudding
2 (11oz.)Can Mandarin Oranges
1 (20oz.) Can Pineapple Tidbits
1 C. Orange Juice
1 TBSP. Lime Juice
3 Banana's~ sliced

In saucepan combine puddings.
Drain cans of fruit~ reserving juice.
Pour reserved juice along with orange juice into a
liquid measuring cup. Add in enough water 
to make 3 cups of liquid.
Pour liquid & pudding mix in sauce pan,
heat over medium heat.
Whisk until pudding is thickened.
Place pineapple and mandarin oranges
in a 2 qt. dish. Pour thickened pudding sauce
over fruit in bowl. Let chill for at least 1 hour.
Before serving, stir in the sliced banana's.
(You wait to add in the banana's after
the pudding sauce has chilled. This will
make sure the banana's wont turn black.)
