I found this easy fruit salad recipe in an old Gooseberry Patch recipe book (A Pinch of This, A Dash of That) and it became a family favorite in about five seconds flat!

Which is exactly how long it took my kids and their dad to devour it!

You know I’m all about simple, not only in our DIY home projects but also in feeding my family without spending all day in the kitchen (like these slow cooker recipes.)

I also like inexpensive ingredients that are easily accessible.

I’ve always tried to involve my kids in the kitchen since they were wee little ones. This is perfect for you young mamas who want to teach your children to love cooking and baking from an early age.

I love the Gooseberry Patch recipe books (including Mom’s Very Best Recipes and Slow Cooking All Year ‘Round). I love cooking homemade recipes for my family but saving time is also a priority

  1. What a great idea to add the vanilla pudding mix. Sounds like a great flavor combination. Thank you for linking up at the #HomemattersParty and hope to see you again.

  2. Your picture shows pineapple chunks but your recipe called for crushed pineapple. I used crushed pineapple and I think the chunks would’ve been better. It was too mushy. Still tastes very good but the texture and presentation would’ve been better with chunks. (If I spent more time in the kitchen, I might’ve figured that out on my own – LOL.)

    1. Hi, Debbie. Thanks so much for pointing out that discrepancy! I changed the recipe so that it shows pineapple chunks which is much better! Glad you enjoyed it!
