This was ok, I made it to add to Thanksgiving dinner and most everyone thought it was too sweet and not enough fruit. It didn't hold up for left overs at all either, but that wasn't unexpected ...

Outstanding as always, however, I left out the nuts for my family's taste, and I used a whole 8 ounce container of cool whip for extra creaminess and a 20 ounce can of pineapple. It was great!

This was an excellent dessert and very easy to make. Made plenty for later.
