Fresh Fruit Salad ~ Pineapple Dressing

Fresh fruit salad is a summertime favorite...and the recipe for this cooked pineapple dressing has been a standard at our home for decades. It is from the Mennonite Treasury of Recipes...and can be stirred into the fruit salad or served separately as a topping for the fruit.

Use fresh fruit of your choice...strawberries, pineapple, grapes, blueberries or peaches.

Pineapple dressing:
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whipped cream

Method:

  1. Beat eggs....add sugar, pineapple and lemon juice.
  2. Cook in saucepan over medium heat...stirring constantly...until thickened. Chill.
  3. Whip cream...and fold into mixture just before serving.

Enjoy!

  9. That is the same dressing that my grandma's 7-up salad was made with. You made the lime jello with 7-up, and added pineapple and bananas to it. The dressing went on top, and grated chesse over that. Mmmmm. I love your site and get lots of good recipes, thanks so much!

  12. Just wondering if there is a substitution for the pineapple??? We have allergies to pineapple..so is there an alternative I could use...it sounds so yummy. Dianntha

  13. Dianntha...I'm sure you could use orange juice instead of pineapple...and it would just be a slightly different citrussy flavour.

  16. I'm making this for a shower on Tuesday! I'm going to layer fruit in stem-ware with this dressing and then sprinkle the top with toasted coconut. Should be pretty and delicious! :)
