Wednesday's Chow - Frog Eye Salad

My daughter got this recipe from her mother-in-law.  It's a delicious fruit salad. The only problem is it makes a LOT of salad, so it's best for large family gatherings or pot luck suppers/picnics. 

Frog Eye Salad

Warning – Makes a LOT of salad.

Boil 1 lb. Acine de Pepe pasta (frog eye) in 3 quarts of water for 8 mins; drain.

In a small sauce pan combine:

1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp flour

Then add

2 cups pineapple juice
2 beaten eggs

Cook until thick. Remove from heat and add:

1 cup coconut
1 cup mini-marshmallows
1-20 oz can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
1-20 oz can pineapple tidbits (do not drain)
3 small cans mandarin oranges (drain these)

Mix well, then fold in:

1-14 oz tub Whipped Topping

Chill at least 8 hours.

Frog Eye Salad - the name would scare off my family.

Eeeeuwwww!!! Horrible title, but the recipe sounds delish. You haven't steered me wrong yet, Anna Kathryn. I'll have to try it.
