This is a delicious summer salad with a tropical flair that has been a family favorite my whole life, and probably longer. Pineapple, marshmallows, and whipped cream make this salad good as a side dish, or as a cool and refreshing dessert. Overnight refrigeration is the most important step to allow the marshmallows to fluff.

As a chef I don't know if I should admit to thoroughly enjoying this recipe. It tastes nothing like it sounds meaning it is fabulous. Seriously give this a try - the whole bowl was gone - enjoyed by even the skeptics. Love it! Read More
