Years ago I enjoyed a salad similar to this. I got what was in it, but not how to put it all together and the sizes and amounts. Over the years I used trial and error to come up with this. My husband's family just expect this at every gathering and really gripe if I don't make it. Once I was planning something else and they brought the ingredients to the gathering for me to make it.


  1. Chop the cherries into fourths, but reserve a few for the top whole.
  2. Mix pudding with cool whip and pineapple with juice.
  3. Add walnuts, chopped cherries and marshmallows.
  4. Combine well.
  5. Refridgerate for at least 24 hours so marshmallows can soften, but can be served after 2 hours.
  6. Garnish with whole cherries on top.

This was great! Easy. Quick. Pretty. And everyone liked it. I will definitely make again. I made this for Christmas Open House. I sprinkled crushed candy canes on the top. It looked pretty and festive and the candy canes added a nice flavor to the Fluff.
