Food Friday - Cherry Fluff Stuff

Wow, can you believe that it is Memorial  Day Weekend!  First off, I'd like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my mom.  Yep, it is her birthday today!  Now, back to food.  Whether you are celebrating with friends or just with your family, we all enjoy food on these long weekends so I wanted to share this simple, cool salad recipe with you . . it almost counts as a dessert too!

Cherry Fluff Stuff (aka 4th of July Salad)
adapted from MY MOM (in honor of her birthday HA!)

This salad has been a favorite for years and year - we even had it served at our wedding reception we love it so much.  The ingredient list is small, it is easy to throw together and it is cool and refreshing especially in the midst of a hot summer!

1 small can of crushed pineapple, well drained (this time I used Pineapple tidbits and that worked well too)
1 can of Cherry Pie Filling
1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 -8 oz container of Cool Whip (you can you more - it just makes it lighter and fluffier and not so sweet)

Mix everything together and chill for at least an hour. 

Enjoy your weekend!
