Overnight Fruit Salad

I love fruit salads and this is the “Queen of Them All” type of salad.


  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, cut in half
  • 1 cup seedless green grapes, cut in half
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 2 firm bananas
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans

Cook and stir eggs, sugar and vinegar until thickened and reaches 160 degrees. Remove from heat and add the butter, stir to blend. Cool.

In a large bowl, combine all the fruit and add the dressing, stirring to coat.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Just before serving, add the sweetened whipping cream and pecans.  Mix together and serve in your prettiest bowls.

This will serve 8 comfortably or 4 hungary people. It is so yummy! Makes my mouth water just putting this together.

This bodes well for breakfast, served with fresh homemade muffins or for lunch with hot buttered buns.  Oh yeah, here a glass of white wine will really finish it off.
