How is this perfect for kids or anyone? As a treat, yes... but to pretend it's healthy is crazy. There is no fresh fruit, it's all syrup based canned. Then add sugar and fake whipped cream and white flour. Wow. It may be tasty, but treat it like a once in a while sugary dessert.

I had made this in the past but lost the recipe. This is a great dessert but be warned that this recipe makes A LOT! I followed it exactly just used the colored marshmallows for Easter. Next time I'll only make 1/2 a recipe b/c that little bag of pasta is deceiving! It has a nice cool, light, fruity taste -perfect for a hot summer's day dessert. It looks a little different but if you convince people to try it, most love it! Make sure and serve it well chilled. Thanks for reminding me how good this is!!

I used this recipe the first time I ever made frog-eyed salad. It was a hit at the bbq we went to. The next time we were invited back they requested that we bring this salad. It may have even been the reason we were invited ;)! Each time I made it I was not able to refrigerate for 8 hours for one reason or another. Both times I put the bowl in the freezer the morning of and stirred every 15 minutes until it was chilled through and not quite freezing to the side of the bowl. Then I refrigerated and added the rest of the ingredients right before we left for the bbq.
