This is excellent! I will definately be making this again. As previously suggested, I'll try crushed pineapple next time, but this is really very, very good. Thanks for posting this gem. It's a keeper.

While these tasted good, they are very rich. A little goes a long way. They froze into unattractive little blobs with paper lining ridges running along the sides. Marg's suggestion of using a 13 x 9 pan might create a more visually appealing end product.

This is delicious! I have always used 2 small tubs of Cool Whip too. This salad is perfect for a baby or bridal shower but I serve it at other times too. You can also freeze it in a 13x9 inch pan. Allow to set out a few minutes before serving. Very popular summer salad or dessert.
