Rhubarb Tapioca Pudding

A surprise medley of fruits combined with tapioca pudding is a tasty treat.

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup instant tapioca
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups sliced rhubarb
2 cups water
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
8 strawberries, garnish optional
cool whip, garnish optional

In a large saucepan, stir together the sugar, tapioca and salt. Stir in rhubarb and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until rhubarb is tender and mixture is thickened. Remove from heat and add pineapple. Add red food coloring, if desired. I find that the red color improves the presentation! Serve chilled. Optional flower garnish for top of each serving: Use fresh strawberries. Cut each strawberry in fourths. Lay the strawberry pieces on top of each individual serving like flower petals. Place a dab of cool whip in the center of the strawberry pieces.
