Growing up I never had food like this. Our family was more meat and potatoes. I had this dish at my mother-law's house for the first time when I was dating my husband yet to be.
Children will love this salad as
let's just say- it's more like dessert!
You will need: 1 15-20 oz size can of crushed pineapple, 1 10 1/4 oz bag of colored marshmellows, 1 8 oz cream cheese and 2 cups of whipped cream - 1 1/4 cups of heavy whipping cream will whip to 2 cups (original recipe called for cool whip if you prefer)
Drain the pineapple and mix with the marshmellows in a large bowl. Refrigerate several hours. Meanwhile allow cream cheese to soften at room temperature.
When soft, blend together cream cheese and whipping cream and mix with other items in bowl (on low with blender) Spoon all into pyrex dish and refrigerate until ready to eat.
This salad is fun for Easter decorated with some of those Peeps on top! Even though it is snowing today in Colorado- spring is coming!
