2 small cans of mandarin oranges
2 big cans pineapple tidbits or chunks (tidbits are better)
2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding
2 cups buttermilk
12 ounces cool whip (whipped topping, or whatever you call it)
1 package of fudge stripe cookies (all this stuff can be the off brand if you want)
Let the canned fruit drain overnight in the fridge. (If you have time. If not just let it drain while you mix the other stuff.) Mix the 2 boxes of pudding with the 2 cups of buttermilk. Then fold in the cool whip to that mixture. Cut up the bananas and mix all the fruit into the pudding, buttermilk, and cool whip stuff. Then right before you serve it crumble the package of cookies up and mix them into the salad. This is SO good and is perfect for parties!
