Very good recipe- I made a few changes to this. I made the salad the night before, I mixed the juice, milk, sugar, pudding and crushed pineapple together. I stirred in the cooked pasta, and let that sit together in the fridge over night. In a different bowl I opened the fruit drained, and added about 2 cups maraschino cherries, let that sit together overnight. The next morning I re-drained the fruit and mixed together with pasta and added the whipped topping and marshmallows. I left out the coconut. VERY GOOD!!

for super a super rich flavor, use french vanilla pudding and french vanilla whipped topping and add a tsp of vanilla extract.

Great salad, even better if yo use pistachio pudding. It gives it a green tint. Lovely & tasty.
