Cookie Dessert Masquerading as Salad



The name calls it “salad” but in my book it’s more of a dessert than a salad.  I mean, when you think of salad it brings to mind green things, with other bits of more, crunchy, green things, and perhaps some random red things mixed together in a bowl, waiting to be drenched in a vinegar-based dressing.  But cookie salad? Anything with cookies and whipped cream should be classified as a dessert, which is where you’ll find it in my blog.  And it is yummy!  I love the creaminess with the accompanying crunch. So without further ado, I give you Cookie Salad, a recipe from my friend Karina’s collection.

Cookie Salad


2 c. buttermilk

1 16 oz pkg Cool Whip topping

1 lg pkg. vanilla instant pudding

1 pkg fudge stripe cookies, break into quarters, reserve several for garnish

1 can mandarin oranges

1 can pineapple chunks or tidbits

2-3 bananas, sliced (add just before serving)


Mix Cool Whip, buttermilk, and pudding together with a wire whisk. Stir in remaining ingredients (except bananas). Chill until ready to serve. Stir in sliced bananas just before serving.
