This salad fell a bit flat for us. I think mostly it was the texture which seemed cloud-like (very airy). I thought with the addition of the cream cheese it would have a more substantial flavor and texture.
Oh, my this is so wonderful. I think that I could eat the whole bowl myself, and it makes a big bowl. I love the combination of the cream cheese and Cool Whip. The walnuts are a good addition to the salad, too, especially since walnuts are a lot less expensive in my area than pecans. This would be wonderful for Thanksgving or Christmas dinner. It would also make a nice dish to take for a pot luck dinner, I will keep this in mind for that.
Yes! This is a nice salad or dessert! Hubby doesn't care for cream cheese but he didn't know it in this recipe and my little secret is that most of the time I can sneak in a little cream cheese or sour cream and he doesn't know it. He loved this! Will make again. Thanks for posting!
I read about this in a previous post and was interested to try it! This reminded me of a "white" Watergate salad (same texture). It was refreshing and not too heavy or sweet, since it didn't call for pudding or flav. Jello. I used non fat cream cheese and Dream Whip and it was plenty rich for me. It made a nice ending to our fajitas and rice. Thanks for posting, Chef #278118! Roxygirl
