My grandma used to make this salad at holiday time when I was little. It's an old recipe but still just as good.

This of COURSE was A W E S O M E!!!! I had walnuts in the freezer so I beat then up with a hammer and tossed them in the pudding pool. I was out of milk so I used about 1/4 of vanilla creamer. To be honest with you 1 cup of milk would have made this too soupy. JMO;) I liked the addition of cream cheese it gave the salad a creamier texture a little something special! Thank you SusieQ this is a keeper that I'll be making again!; Read More

Delicious! Great summertime treat for when its too hot to bake. I read other similar recipes but went with this one because of the cream cheese which is absent from most other recipes. I think it's a winner. Read More

The only 2 things I did differently is I added the cool whip by folding it in to the cream cheese and milk and pudding. My husband will like this. Read More
