Here's a fun and different twist on fruit salad! Add cookies! Now don't be turning your nose up...this is REALLY good! Keep in mind that banana pudding has cookies in it and this is kind of like that. I left the bananas out of it for us because none of use around here are that excited about bananas but the pineapple and mandarin oranges were perfect! Pick your choice of canned fruit...get creative!
