Frog Eye Salad

  • 20 oz can crushed pineapple, drain and save the juice
  • 11 oz can mandarin oranges, drain and save the juice
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 TBS flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cup juice from the fruit (I didn’t have that much juice from the fruit but the salad turned out great).
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1 large container of Cool Whip
  • 1 lb box Acine de Pepe pasta (hence, the frog eyes)
  • Mix flour, sugar, salt.  Gradually stir in the juice and eggs. Cook over medium heat until thick. You must stir constantly and don’t get the burner too hot because you will find cooked egg in what should be a lovely smooth custard (voice of experience talking) .

    Mix cooked macaroni with the fruit.  Add lemon juice, cool whip and then add mixture to cooked macaroni.  Chill overnight or until you can’t resist it any longer.

    What a GREAT recipe to serve for Leap Year! :-), or any time for that matter!  Enjoy!

How many can I serve out of this salad?? I am guessing that at the end of this recipe that you mix it all together once you have the pasta cooked and custard made–?? It isn’t completely clear when you add the custard mixture.
Sorry, but wasn’t sure. It sounds great. Also large container of Cool Whip is
that 16 oz.?? Elaine Young
