Fruity Dessert Salad

If you've ever needed a potluck salad or a yummy fruity side salad, or just something delicious to add to your favorite summer meal and wanted to get RAVE reviews...then this is the salad for you.  It's INCREDIBLY easy (5 min total time) and oh so delicious!  The compliments will never stop!  You'll have multiple requests for this recipe.  No lie.  Young and old LOVE this berry salad.  There are very few ingredients and yet TONS of flavor!  It's especially nice in the warmer summer months because it incorporates partially frozen berries.  Are you curious about this one yet???  I'm wanting to make another batch of it right now...just so I can sit down and devour it all myself!

{fruity dessert salad}
2 small packages of pudding (either white chocolate or cheesecake...both taste fantastic!)
1 large container of strawberry yogurt
1 large container of frozen whipped topping
16 oz. frozen berries of your choice (partially thawed)..I use the giant triple berry package from Costco.
3 large fresh bananas, sliced
1 lb. fresh strawberries, sliced

Combine the pudding and the yogurt in a LARGE bowl until combined.  It will be lumpy and that's okay.  Fold in the frozen whipped topping....notice lumpiness going away...  Add the fresh and frozen fruits and continue folding till combined.  Serve immediately for best flavor.  Refrigerate.

 If you have extra time, do not thaw the berries.  Just add them frozen and they will be partially thawed by the time you need them.  Just be sure to keep refrigerated till serving!

  5. I want to make this but do I make the pudding with the milk or just combine with yogurt dry??
    Please respond I want to make it for my husband's birthday next week.

  6. do you make the pudding with milk or put in yogurt dry???

  7. No...mix with yogurt then add cool whip.

  8. looks delicious! how big is each serving and how many servings does this make? thanks

    1. Jacq, It makes a lot and servings really depend on the size of scoop each person takes and how often they go back for seconds and thirds, etc. I want to say, probably a generous estimate of 16?
