Ok, All Things Thrifty Home Accessories and Decor posted a fantastic Cottage Cheese Fruit Salad recipe yesterday, and asked others to share our favorite salad recipes as well. It's part of her "All Things Delicious [January Edition]Share your Favorite Salad Recipe!"
Anyways, here are 2 of my favorite salads that my family enjoys throughout the year! They aren't super healthy, but not too bad if you use low-fat and fat-free items! :) Enjoy!
We call this one "Green Stuff" and it's been a family favorite for YEARS!
Green Stuff (Pistachio Fruit Salad)
2 cups pineapple juice (use juice from pineapple first, then oranges)
2 pkgs. pistachio pudding (small, fat-free, sugar-free)
16 oz. sour cream
8 oz. Cool Whip
2 cans pineapple tidbits
2 cans mandarin oranges (I use big cans)
1 jar cherries (without stems)
Mix pudding with juice (pour juice in first then slowly add pudding). Add sour cream and Cool Whip. Mix in fruit (drain well).
We usually half this recipe. We use half the amount of cherries then make it again with the 2nd half when the first batch is gone.
This is one of my most favorite chicken salads ever. It's so different from any others that I've ever had! :) YUM!!
Flying Cheddar Chicken Salad
2 cups chopped chicken
1/2 cup Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
Combine all ingredients. Mix well.
We usually double and sometimes triple this recipe.
