Dessert Salad FAQ
A dessert salad is a sweet dish that typically combines canned fruit or fresh fruit with other ingredients such as whipped cream or cool whip, gelatin, pudding, nuts, or marshmallows.
They can be served as a side dish, a light dessert, or a sweet treat any time of day.
Dessert salads typically use canned fruit, pie filling, or fruit cocktail, although some recipes call for fresh fruits. Pineapple, mandarin ornages, cherries, blueberries, and strawberries are some of the more poular fruits used.
Dessert salads are very easy to make. For most of the recipes you will simply need to stir together a few basic ingredients in a mixing bowl.
While there is no arguing that dessert salads are delicious, they aren’t always the most beautiful dessert to look at. Luckily, I have an easy fix for this: just before serving, stir the salad well and add to a nice serving bowl. Then, add a bit of fresh fruit, nuts, maraschino cherries, or other ingredients to the top of your salad as a garnish.
