Blueberry Fruit Salad

I collect recipes from everywhere, and I found this one several years ago in a magazine. I make different fruit salads, and this is a good recipe with a distinct twist. This fruit salad combines both fresh fruit and canned fruit. There is also a dressing made by combining vanilla pudding mix and powdered orange drink mix, making a very refreshing flavor for a summer day.

Blueberry Fruit Salad

1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks
1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
3 medium firm bananas, sliced
1 cup green grapes, halved
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
3 tablespoons orange breakfast drink mix (like Tang)

Drain the pineapple chunks and the peaches, reserving juices; set aside. Pour the drained fruit into a large bowl.
Combine 4 cups blueberries, 3 sliced bananas, 1 cup of halved green grapes, and 1 cup of sliced strawberries with the peaches and pineapple.
Combine the vanilla pudding mix, 3 tablespoons of the orange drink mix, and the reserved fruit juice. Mix well. Pour over fruit and toss to coat. Chill.

This makes a large, beautiful fruit salad, and it won't last long at my house.
