Frog Eye Salad

This salad is one of my kids favorites. They want to eat it for every meal. I can't really blame them, it tastes like dessert. It is full of pineapple, mandarins, marshmallows and Cool Whip - who wouldn't want to eat that all day?

I love to start making it this time of year & on through summer, it is refreshing and light. You have to plan ahead a little because you have to start the night before, but it is worth it and will go with about any meal. We love it!

Frog Eye Salad

1 box accini depepo pasta
1 cup pineapple juice ( I drain mine from the pineapple chunks )
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs. corn starch
1 cup water
2 big cans pineapple chunks
2 big cans mandarin oranges
2 cups marshmallows
1 can crushed pineapple
1 container Cool Whip

Cook the pasta according to the directions and drain well. Cook the pineapple juice, sugar, corn starch and water in a saucepan until it thickens. Pour over the pasta and put in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning it will look like this...

Before serving add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Can you see all of the yummy goodies in there? They taste so good together!
