Cookie Salad

I am guessing by the title of this recipe, you have all concluded this isn’t your typical salad… and you are right!

I love a good salad.  Seriously.  Leafy greens and mix up the salty or sweet additions… its great!

I also love a dessert salad.  Like this one.  It is the perfect combination of flavors!  When I first heard what went into it I was very skeptical of how it would all taste together… well take my word for it…  it is AMAZING!  I first tried/received this recipe from my parent’s cute neighbors.  My family has been hooked ever since. We had a BBQ with our friends recently and I made this as a side dish/dessert and everyone loved it!  I also love it because it is unique and different.  If you have to bring a side to a dinner with your friends or family, give this one a whirl!

    I definitely agree with the other commenters — this is one salad I can always say yes to! Reminds me of when I used to get blizzards from Dairy Queen as a kid. =)

    I have been making this for years and everyone loves it! We also add bananas right before serving so they don’t go brown:)

    I make a similar salad and it’s now been dubbed “Rebecca Fluff”. :) I love the idea of putting pineapple in it, the mandarin oranges are my favorite part of my salad. I also include Oreos in mine. Next batch I’m adding pineapple though!
