I have been making this for years. It was my favorite as a child. Easy to make and tastes great! We leave out the nuts.
The Canadian Thanksgiving thread had me adding this to my Thanksgiving menu. Looks so appealing served in a glass serving bowl - the combination absolutely delicious. Family did not do justice to this salad until after the meal - meaning at our house they like sweet endings. Next time around will bring it out as dessert - serving in a lovely glass as in Rita's photo. Thank you for reminding me of an old favorite which will be seeing to repeats.
OH this is one of my favorites! My mom used to make this all the time, I couldn't remember exactly the ingredient amounts so thanks!
Wonderful recipe!! I made this for my husband and myself using sugar free pistachio pudding, sugar free cool whip, no sugar added crushed pineapple, toasted up some walnuts for sprinkling on top, for a "light" "lite" guiltfree sweet ending!! Thanks for sharing.
The best!! So easy and perfect for a lite dessert. That is how I served it. Everyone raved and had more. Brings back memories of another time. I made it with tropical fruit and added a banana and coconut. This was what I have been wanting. Thanks for posting.
Loved this recipe! It was SO easy to make and turned out fabulous! I followed this recipe but also added 1 can of mandarin oranges and sweetened coconut flakes. My husband really loved it and it reminded him of his childhood. Thanks for sharing!!!
This salad is wonderful and so easy. A great sald to take to potlucks because it looks so pretty and people will think you spent hours. A thanksgiving favorite in our house.
mmmmm!!! Delicious!! The beauty of this salad/dessert is that you can make it your own. Using the pistachio pudding mix and cool whip, you can pretty much add whatever you want to it, and it comes out great. I made this yesterday, and added maraschino cherries, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and topped it with mixed nut pieces. Our 4 year old grandson, Owen declared it to be "delicious grandma!!!" so to me, that was the ultimate compliment!! Thank you for a great and easy summertime salad that is always a hit with everyone!!! It can be a salad, or a dessert!!!
Perfect Pistachio Pudding!! I loved it and ate it all by myself! :)
