Frog Eye Fruit Salad

My husband has been asking me to make this salad for quite a while. Maybe even the full five years we've been married. I'm glad I finally gave into him, because it is a delightful salad, light and yummy. We took it to a family Christmas party, and it was a huge success. I found the recipe here: Frog Eye Salad with only a few minor changes.

3/4 C sugar
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 C pineapple juice
1 egg, well beaten
1 tsp lemon juice
1 C Acini de Pepe pasta, uncooked
2 cans mandarin oranges, drained
1 (20-oz) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 (20-oz) can pineapple tidbits, drained
2 C miniature marshmallows
1 C real whipped cream, whipped
1 C shredded coconut

Combine sugar, flour and salt in a saucepan.

Stir pineapple juice into beaten egg then into the sugar mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Set aside to cool.

Cook Acini de Pepe in 3 quarts of boiling water for 6-8 minutes, stirring often.

Drain and rinse.

Combine cooked sauce with cooked Acini de Pepe. Cover and chill in refrigerator.

When cool, stir in the well drained fruit, marshmallows, coconut, and whipped topping.

Chill at least one hour before serving. ENJOY!!
