I've made Frog Eye Salad for 20 years and I always get requests for this recipe. It's always fun to see someone else's version. I would not put coconut in anything, but that's me. Might I make a suggestion. I always do this in two steps. Make the pasta and the egg mixture first. Put it together and refrigerate it overnight. In the meantime dump all your fruits together in a bowl and put them in the fridge as well. The next day, just before serving, dump your fruit in and stir, and then add your cool whip. Keeps everything firm without melting down. I have also always used the colored minature marshmallows, it just gives the salad a more fruity flavor.

I LOVE this salad. Though, to make it easier I took out the first 7 ingredients and skipped the first step, and just made vanilla instant pudding. A lot easier.

This is a wonderful recipe. However it is very addictive. Children like it as long as you use a different name and omit the coconut. The only change I make is, I boil the pasta in pineapple juice, this helps with the blandness of the pasta.
