One of our traditional family recipes is Heavenly, not the kind from the 60's or Venice Beach. This one is made with marshmallows and a cooked dressing mixed with whipped cream. Yum! Note to self: Mix in the large lid of your cake holder because it makes a lot. You need to make it a day ahead to let the flavors blend together..........heavenly!


1 large can pineapple cubes (drain & save)
1 pound marshmallows (small variety)
1 cup broken pecans
1 jar red maraschino cherries
2 cups seedless green or red grapes (cut in halves)
1/2 pint strawberries
1 large can mandarin oranges
1 1/2 pints whipping cream - whipped

3 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon flour
6 egg yolks (beat well by hand)
3 Tablespoons vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
1/4 cup pineapple juice (left over from canned pineapple)

Mix all fruit, nuts, marshmallows. Cook dressing in top of a double boiler until it becomes thick like pudding. Cool dressing mixture before adding to fruit. Then add whipping cream. Refrigerate 24 hours before serving. Enjoy!
