Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Salad #5

on June 7, 2016

The recipe for today is another one that’s simply called Salad, so henceforth, this recipe will be called Salad #5. As I’ve said before, there are so many recipes simply called Salad, that we have to number them or there would be no way to differentiate. This really should be a dessert instead of a salad. The ingredients in this “salad” are not incredibly healthy, or what you’d think of as a “salad”. You’ll see what I mean as we go along. Grandma and her sisters definitely had quite a sweet tooth. This salad is another really easy, really good one for all of your summer gatherings – graduations, bridal showers, picnics, or potlucks.

Salad #5

Yeah – I’d say this is more of a dessert.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Salad #5

Mix well:

1 package instant vanilla pudding

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup buttermilk

Mix in:

9 ounce Cool Whip

Add:

Drained, canned fruit of several different kinds (I used 4 different kinds: fruit cocktail, pear chunks, mandarin oranges, sliced peaches)

Add just before serving:

1/2 package fudge striped cookies, crushed (yes – you read that right!)

002

I have to say again – so easy! (Please excuse the bad lighting here – I made this in my mom’s kitchen.)

004

The hardest part of making this salad might be draining the four cans of fruit. Well, maybe it was harder to crush the cookies. Hmmm – I can’t decide.

007

I guess I could have worked a little harder on crushing the cookies. Some pieces were a bit large, but nobody seemed to mind that.

009

All mixed up and ready for the big show.

011

This just seems like something you’d want at a special occasion, but it’s so easy to make, it seems like it might not be special enough for a special occasion. Wrong. This is a very special salad and it’s PERFECT for a special occasion.

016

You can see here on the top of this serving of salad that there were some pieces of cookie that were large and didn’t get crushed enough – oh well. I think Grandma and her sisters had the right idea. I like this kind of “salad” instead of the healthy kind. Well, maybe the healthy kind of salad has its place. This “salad” SHOULD be saved for special occasions, I guess. Very special.
