Frog Eye Salad

Fish Egg Salad

There are no frog eyes or fish eggs in the first salad recipe. It's called that because of the tiny little pasta pellets that it is made with, called Acini Di Pepe. You can find it in a grocery store near the spaghetti and macaroni and other pasta, or online at Amazon.

1 Tablespoon Flour

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

2 (11 oz) cans mandarin oranges drained

8 oz whipped topping

1 Cup Mini Marshmallows

1/2 Cup Coconut

In a medium size pan, stir together sugar, flour, and salt. Drain one cup of the canned pineapple juice. Whisk the juice and egg into the mixture. Cook at medium heat, stirring frequently until it comes to a boil. Stir in the lemon juice, remove from heat, and let it cool to room temperature.

Cook Acini Di Pepe to the package directions. Drain. Rinse with cold water to cool. Drain very well. In a large bowl, stir together the mixture and the Acini Di Pepe. Cover and refridgerate several hours. Add pineapple, oranges, whipped topping, marshmallows, and coconut, Mix thoroughly. Cover and refridgerate. Before serving, garnish with cherries.

      Really enjoyed looking at these salads - and the salad news was interesting too. Apparently some guy got 6 years in prison for garlic smuggling. Blessed!

      @Lady Lorelei: You could use the pimentoes from stuffed olives as the eyes.

      Thanks for sharing these interesting recipes. Way to sweet for my salad sense. I bet they are very pretty but I'm not a fan of marshmallows or maraschino cherries.

      Hmmm? My morbid mind is working overtime...I was thinking that if the base of the salad were green that frog eye salad really would look like something you could fix up for Halloween.... Have a wonderful Christmas season :)
