Fruit Cocktail Dessert

If  you know company is coming for dinner and you need an easy dessert, this one’s for you. All you’ll need is a can of fruit cocktail, a can of crushed pineapple, a box of Pistachio pudding and a little Cool Whip. Throw it all together in a bowl and let it sit for a few hours in the fridge. This will help it thicken up a bit.

It reminds me a bit of those dessert salads that were so popular in the past. I guess this could be served as a salad too, but I think it’s more like a dessert. I put it in parfait dishes and topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
