Frog Eyes Salad

I LOVE this salad! So yummy! Just note: you do have to start a day in advance.

1/2 c sugar
1 Tbs flour
1 tsp salt
1 c pineapple juice
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp lemon juice
3 quarts water
1/2 Tbs oil
half of a 16 oz pkg Acini de Pepe (found w/the noodles/pasta in the store)

10 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
20 oz can pineapple chunks, drained (I use tidbits and they work fine)
9 oz carton cool whip
1/2 c miniature marshmallows

Combine sugar, flour and salt. Gradually stir in pineapple juice and egg. Cook over moderate heat, stirring until thickened. Add lemon juice. Cool mixture to room temperature.
Bring water and oil to a boil. Add Acini de Pepe; mix lightly but thoroughly. Refrigerate over night in air-tight container.

Add remaining ingredients, mix lightly but thoroughly. Refrigerate until chilled in air-tight container. Salad may be refrigerated for 1 week in air-tight container. Makes 12 servings.

NOTE: Double this recipe to feed a crowd!

******** I looked in probably 20 cook books before I found a recipe for it. I guess I could have checked online. Oh well. So all of you who are my like and have forgetful spells of the internet, here it is (even though it's still on the internet. ;) Oh well.) ENJOY!
