Dessert Salads are the Best Summertime Treat

I associate dessert salads such as this one and my Watergate Salad as summertime fare, however I know that there are a lot of people that serve dessert salads with their winter holiday meals as well, Thanksgiving and Christmas. This one is very tropical and reminds you of palm trees and the hot summer sun…hammocks and coconut drinks…everything that is good about the hot summer months. Not that I won’t make this at Christmas because – will wonders never cease – Mr Magpie actually LOVED this dessert fluff. I didn’t actually make it for us, I made this to test out a new idea that I had and he ended up loving it!

As with all dessert salad or dessert fluff recipes, you need to make this at least 4-5 hours ahead of time and then refrigerate it. The marshmallows need time to expand and soak up the moisture from the other ingredients in the salad, which then makes everything gel together perfectly – and it becomes scoop-able.It’s like a bit of Hawaiian Cheesecake without the crust! If you wanted you could also sprinkle graham crumbs on top as well!

I hope that everyone had a fabulous Canada Day yesterday and that my American readers are looking forward to the 4th of July! This would be perfect for the 4th! If you want to try other dessert salads, how about my:

    I make an ambrosia that is similar to this. Instead of while marshmallow, I use marshmallow fluff.
