Rosa Marina Fruit Salad Recipe
Fruit salad gets a new twist with the addition of Rosa Marina, also known as orzo, pasta in this creamy fruit salad.
I cut the recipe in half because it makes so much, so only used the can of crushed pineapple and not the chunks. I cooked the syrup but it didn't thicken, even after cooling for 30 minutes, so brought it back up to a slow boil, mixed 2 teaspoons of cornstarch in a tablespoon of water, added that, brought it to boil, and it thickened nicely. Definitely a keeper!
I liked this very much, but did cut it down to a smaller scale. After cooking orzo, I put cooked orzo in a bowl and added juice to orzo without heating and allowed the juice to absorb into orzo, stirring occasionally. Once juice was absorbed into orzo, I put the bowl of orzo into the refrigerator for about an hour. After given time to cool, I added fruit in recipe (1 can of pineapple tidbits, 1 can mandarin oranges, and maraschino cherries) to bowl I also added some coconut flakes and crushed pecans. Then I mixed in cool whip, until well blended. Ihe salad isn't thick but it's lightly sweet and very enjoyable.
