Strawberry Pineapple Salad: Ingredients
10 oz of frozen or fresh strawberries (conversions here)
1 small can of crushed pineapple (fresh pineapple can also be used)
3 oz cream cheese
1 package of Dream Whip
1 large box of strawberry Jell-O
1/2 package of miniature marshmallows
Strawberry Pineapple Salad Recipe Directions
If you have chosen to use fresh strawberries and fresh pineapples, wash and remove the green caps from the strawberries and then slice the strawberries (about 1/4 of an inch thick per slice) or cube them. Prepare the pineapple also and cube or crush it. Next, dissolve the strawberry Jell-O in one cup of boiling water. In a separate bowl, mix together the Dream Whip and cream cheese. After the two ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add the strawberries and pineapple. Pour the Jell-O over the top of the mixture, sprinkle nuts on top of the Jell-O, place in the refrigerator, and chill until it is firm. Serve to your happy family or guests with a hulled strawberry garnishing!
Strawberry Pineapple Salad: Notes
Just like most of the other Strawberry Recipes, this strawberry pineapple salad recipe is easily modified. As mentioned above, either frozen or fresh or canned fruit can be tried. Also, extra sugar can be added for more sweet zip. For those conscious about the amount of refined table sugar they consume, feel free to try organic evaporated cane juice crystals, turbinado, sucanat, honey crystals, brown sugar, or even stevia to give unique and varied accents to this quick strawberry recipe (if using pure stevia extract, however, be very cautious with the amount used as it is tremendously sweet and can give an aftertaste if too much is used). Also, try different nuts or mix them for varied accents. Walnuts, pecans, pistachios, peanuts, or whatever your favorite nut may be can all be used.
