Even the kids will love this fruit salad!

I made this fruit salad yesterday, and it turned out amazing! Check out the pictures! VERY fresh tasting and scrumptious!

Fruit Salad or Dessert with Marshmallows and canned fruit

I used canned pineapple chunks, mandarin orange segments, and sliced peaches (chopped).

You can substitute, or add maraschino cherries if you like.

Adding red cherries would make it a perfect salad for Christmas!

Chop the sliced, drained peaches in half, and then in half again.

Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice, and set the pineapple chunks aside.

In a pan, combine the sugar, flour, beaten eggs, lemon juice and the reserved pineapple juice until smooth.

Cook and stir over medium-low heat, until mixture is thickened and bubbles appear on the surface. Stir often to prevent sticking and burning.

Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
