Classic Gluten-Free Fruit Salad

Gluten Free Fruit Salad

Gluten-Free Classic Fruit Salad 2011 (c) Teri Lee Grus.

This is the recipe that we all loved as kids. It’s sweet, creamy and the tangy pineapple dressing is delicious.

This colorful fruit salad is a gluten-free version of the classic fruit salad recipe based on cooked pineapple juice dressing.

The recipe serves a crowd of 12 (or more), so if you are cooking for a small group, reduce the volume accordingly.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Time to chill cooked dressing: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour, 37 minutesYield: 12

Ingredients:
•2 large eggs
•3 tablespoons gluten-free sweet rice flour
•1/2 cup sugar
•1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
•2 (20 ounce) cans pineapple chunks, drain and reserve juice
•1 (15 ounce) can apricot halves, cut into bite sizes
•2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
•1 cup sliced seedless grapes, green or red
•1/2 pint of whipping cream
•2 cups miniature marshmallows

Preparation:
Crack eggs into a medium saucepan. Whisk to blend. Add sweet rice flour. Whisk to blend. Add sugar and salt. Whisk and cook over medium heat until thick and creamy.

Add reserved pineapple juice. Blend and cook until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat and completely cool. This dressing can be made up to one day before making salad. Chill in refrigerator.

Whip cream until peaks form.

Place prepared fresh and canned fruit in a large mixing bowl. Pour chilled dressing over fruit. Use a large spatula to thoroughly blend. Fold in whipped cream and marshmallows – optional.
