Time was passing quickly. Joseph Woodring needed something in a hurry to bring for a potluck meal. Fortunately, he turned to teriskitchen.com, where he found this recipe for a fruit salad that does involve peeling or cutting any fresh fruit. A woman named Theresa Richards submitted it to the Web site.

1 (8-ounce) container whipped topping
½ cup pecans
½ cup flaked coconut
Stir together pineapple, fruit cocktail, oranges and pudding; mix well. Stir in whipped topping. Pour into deep dish; sprinkle with nuts and coconut. Refrigerate until serving.
