Strawberry Fluff Salad

For Thanksgiving this year I was asked to bring a Jello Salad.  Typically my family makes some sort of cranberry Jell-o salad, or orange salad. But – I’m not a fan of mandarin oranges or cranberries in Jell-o.  I figured since I’m in the ‘pinterest’ generation – I could find something else amazing that I’d love even more.

But, I didn’t.

Everything I saw had cottage cheese or mandarin oranges or was otherwise gross-looking.  So I figured I’d make my own using an adaptation an Orange Fluff salad I found online to make my own Strawberry Fluff Jello Salad.

Not only was it a big hit at Thanksgiving – I was asked to bring it again, at Christmas. So I figured I’d share the recipe with all of you Smile

Ingredients
  1. 1 large package Cook and Serve vanilla pudding
  2. 1 large package Strawberry Jell-o
  3. 2 cups water
  4. 16 oz Cool-Whip (lite or fat-free is fine)
  5. 1/2 bag mini marshmallows
  6. 1 container fresh strawberries cut into bite size pieces
Instructions
  1. Pour dry pudding packet and Jell-o packet into a small pan and add 2 cups water.
  2. Stir well over medium heat until it boils.
  3. Remove from the stove and pour into a very large mixing bowl or into your electric mixer bowl
  4. Refrigerate until it thickens. (This takes apx 1-2 hours.)
  5. When you remove from the fridge, use a mixer, hand mixer, or whisk (with a LOT of muscle) to whip it until it is creamy and very few lumps are left.
  6. Add the Cool Whip – and mix lightly.
  7. Lightly fold in marshmallows and strawberries – save a few strawberries and marshmallows for a garnish.
  8. Pour into a nicer dish – because this one will be messy. Garnish.
  9. Cover and refrigerate until ready to go.
Notes
  1. I have been successful doing this with Raspberries and a Raspberry Jello as well - although my family much prefers the strawberry version.
  2. A commenter mentioned she loves using chocolate chips to add a 'crunch' to the recipe.

Happy Cookin’!

***NOTE*** A commenter mentioned she had the feeling that the salad needed something more crunchy in the salad… she added chocolate chips – and it was a HIT!  

SHORT ON TIME??? Try the Strawberry Yogurt Fluff Salad!

It’s a great second choice, and takes 5 minutes!
