This has been used as a Thanksgiving favorite in my family for years. We haven't figured out yet if it's a fruit salad or a dessert! It is rich and good.

This is awesome! I too (as someone else had written) thought this was something only my family has called "pink stuff". It must be a southern thing? I only used maybe half of the condensed milk and 3/4 of a can of strawberry pie filling. I found it to not be too sweet at all! In fact I added marshmellows and a dash or two of cinnamon! Everyone loved it and I like how easy it is to make and to "tinker" with you're own flavors. Read More

A little too rich for my taste as a salad and not what I expected as a dessert. I like the "green stuff" better (the salad made with pistachio pudding and pineapple and whipped topping). Read More

This recipe is WONDERFUL!! But instead of cherry pie filling I used strawberry pie filling and pecan pieces as opposed to chopped pecans. It was a huge hit!!! Read More

Whew!! This is sweet!! But delicious nonetheless. I made this and left it in the fridge to blend the flavors. The flavor of the pineapple was hidden somewhere in the mixture. To reduce the sweetness you could use real whipped cream instead of the whipped topping. There is another version of this recipe I came across...(cherry fluff maybe..) that doesn't call for nuts. I prefer mine with nuts...it gives the "stuff" some texture. Thanks Shannon. Read More

This was gone in a flash. Everyone loved it. I made it the night before and it seemed to get fluffy. After reading the reviews I was hesitant about it being too sweet. No one seemed to think so. It was perfect just the way it is. Read More

I served this as a dessert for my husband and parents. This was a huge hit! I used light whipped cream ff condensed milk and light cherry topping. I also added a serving of light cream cheese and crumbled graham cracker crust. This was heavenly! Read More

Wicked sweet but oh so good. This is also good with either a small package of mini marshmallows or half of a bag of shredded coconut. Want it even pinker? Add in a drop or so of red food coloring. Read More

This recipe is great! I've had my kids (4 of them) make it for holidays for a number of years. One year one of them put it in the freezer instead of the fridge to wait for our meal. When we discovered it was frozen solid we decided to slice it into cubes and serve it in it's solid form. It softened and tasted as good as always. Read More

Yikes talk about SWEET! Everyone loved it but me. Just too sweet for my own personal preference. I put in two cans of crushed pineapple drained some mandarin oranges and a cup of finely chopped nuts in an effort to tone down the sweetness. I don't think it worked.Thanks Shannon. Read More
