A Great Easter Recipe!

I found this recipe in an old Telephone Pioneer cookbook, probably 20 or more years ago.  It's absolutely delicious, and so easy to make it's CRAZY!  I will always remember this recipe because I know it's 7 ingredients and they are all very basic.

Fluffy Pink Salad

  • One 8 or 12 ounce carton Cool Whip, thawed
  • One can sweetened condensed milk
  • One can cherry pie filling (or black sweet cherry or strawberry or blueberry)
  • One cup sour cream
  • One large can crushed pineapple, drained
  • One Teaspoon lemon juice
  • One cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, etc.)
Mix all ingredients well.  Keep stored in refrigerator.

And that is it! It's so easy, and makes a huge bowl that is great for family gatherings.  Oh, and you can make it a day or two in advance and the flavors are even better!

So tell me, how are you spending Easter weekend???  Blessings Folks, Becky

Hi Becky, This sounds good and I bet it's pretty too! I hope Easter Sunday is a carbon copy of today; it's been lovely.

Thanks for coming and seeing me. My family will be at our house for Easter, we are all hoping for good weather so the kids can have fun out side. You'll have to tell me all about your farm girl group. How often do you meet? Florence

Yum! I just made this - thank you! I love it. Reminds me of the other pink or orange fluffy stuff, the one made with Cool Whip, cottage cheese, pineapple, and Jello. I like this better, I think.
