Ingredients

    3 20oz. cans pineapple chunks, in 100% juice
    2 15oz. cans mandarin oranges, canned in light syrup, drained

Directions

Open and drain pineapple, reserve the juice.
In a large bowl (preferably one with a lid if it needs to be transported) combine all of the fruit, except for the bananas.
Stir the fruit, then pour in enough of the reserved pineapple juice to submerge most of the fruit.

Before serving, slice and stir in the bananas.
Serve with a slotted as well as a regular spoon, so your guests may help themselves to as much of the pineapple juice as they'd like.

    I think this sounds fabulous, will try soon. I can't believe that some of these people won't try this because they don't like one fruit! Have they never heard of leaving that one out and substituting another?! I can't wait to try this. Thanks - 7/30/09

    As others have suggested, I will probably add some other fruits (frozen blueberries are in the freezer) for color, flavor and texture. It sounds really good as it is, maybe more pineapple than my family enjoys. I'll try it and see. - 7/30/09

    Basic and simple but I used fresh cut pineapple instead. I also added some spices. The reason I made it a 3 was because I could healthy it up and improve the taste. Good boilerplate recipe to develop. And I would make it with changes again. Not as is. - 1/8/08
