I used pecans in this salad instead of walnuts. This also makes an excellent frozen pie--just prepare two graham cracker crusts and pour the salad into the crusts smooth with a spatula then freeze. This is one of my favorite "fluffy" salad recipes. Read More

Unfortunately I did not like this recipe. It had a metal can taste from the sweetened condensed milk & cherry filling. I liked how easy it was but I just couldn't get past that canned taste. Read More

This is so great! I loved it and it was just so amazing. Some people said it was too sweet, but that's their fault that they think that. My dad bought all of the ingredients and stated that they were costly, but I will still be making it again. Read More
