Yesterday, in our water walking class I was talking to a friend about all the wonderful fruits we have right now and she mentioned how she makes her fruit salad. It is an old recipe she has been using for 50 years or more. she simply sliced or dices the fruit, puts in a bowl and makes a dressing our of vanilla pudding, juice of from a can of pineapple and fruit cocktail. She says you have to use old fashion pudding and cook it, using the juices to make it really good. Of course you chill the dressing before adding to the fruit. She said it makes a lot, so great for pot lucks. Well, I decided to do my own version as we do not use canned fruit, nor did I want to make a huge bowl of it.

I used mostly berries, as we have so many right now. I also cut up a little watermelon and 1/2 of a mango. For the dressing I is used

1 of those little individual servings of Vanilla pudding
1 table spoon of oj
1 table spoon of grape juice
2 table spoons of brandy
a pinch of cinn.

It was so good I could have just put it in a small glass and made it a new cocktail.

To be honest, the vanilla pudding thing doesn't sound super appealing to me, but i bet it does taste good. I wonder if this is a "poor man's" version of the delicious Strawberries Romanoff sauce at La Madeleine. (Chain faux French place)

I've never made this at home, so I can't vouch for the linked recipe.

Looks like shortcut creme anglais, some catering businesses do similar tricks.
