Mandarin orange salad is a great recipe to take to any picnic or to have at any gathering.  This salad is wonderful for any holiday or just make it for your family anytime.  I love how pretty this mandarin orange salad is and how good it looks on a buffet table in a pretty bowl.  You can just about add any fruit and make it your own.  It keeps for several days in the refrigerator.  You could double the recipe for a large crowd.  You might also like to check out our recipe for cherry fluff.

1 (8 ounce) container of cool whip

1 (3.4 ounce) box of vanilla instant pudding, dry (do not make the pudding just add the dry mix)

1 (15 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained

1/2 cup miniature marshmallows

1/2 cup coconut

1 cup chopped green or red seedless grapes

1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries

Mix together the cool whip and dry vanilla instant pudding with a spoon.  Fold in the rest of the fruit and mix with a spoon.  You may want to leave out some of the fruit to decorate the top of your salad. Makes 6 cups.  Enjoy.
