   This is smooth, and very rich tasting.  The egg yolk dressing "makes" the taste, in this big crowd pleasing salad.


NOTE*  I made this great salad last weekend.  It is so creamy.  The dressing is like lemon pie filling.  It soaks into the marshmallows and they are like velvet!


   1  large can crushed pineapple (20 ounces)
1/2  pound pecans, coarsely broken
   1  pound grapes, seeded and halved
   1  pound miniature marshmallows
1/2  pint whipping cream, whipped

   4  egg yolks
1/2  cup sugar

   1  large lemon, juiced
Dash of salt and white pepper
   1  cup whipping cream, whipped



   Beat egg yolks well;  add other ingredients.

   Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.

   Let cool.

   Mix well with whipped cream and fruit-nut mixture.

   Let stand 24 hours, refrigerated.
