“I grew up on this stuff. We had it for every holiday or family event. Most frog eye salads call for mini marshmallows. I don't like them because they get soggy and sticky. It is funny how many people have never heard of this salad, but once they have it, they are hooked. Since I can not find acini di pepe pasta here in California, I am forced to beg friends or family members to send it to me from out of state.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare acini de pepe as directed on box.
  2. In saucepan beat eggs with wire whisk until foamy.
  3. Stir in flour, salt, sugar and pineapple liquid.
  4. Cook over low heat until thick and bubbly.
  5. In large bowl combine acini de pepe with egg mixture and chill.
  6. Stir in pineapple, oranges and fruit cocktail (I like the kind with extra cherries).
