This "Strawberry Buttermilk Salad" is so simple, but so yummy! It's not overly sweet like some salads like this can be and it has a nice little tanginess to which makes it good as a side with your meal or as a dessert. If you don't think you care for buttermilk, don't worry, it won't be evident in the taste. This is a great congealed salad for the holidays. Here is what you will need:
1 (20 oz.) can of crushed pineapple
1 (6 oz.) box of strawberry jello
2 cups of buttermilk
1 (8 oz.) container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Place the crush pineapple in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Do not drain the pineapple. Add the jello and stir until dissolved. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl and add the buttermilk. Allow to cool on the counter for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Stir in the whipped topping and the chopped nuts until blended. Pour into a pretty salad bowl or casserole dish. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight until it is set up.
You can decorate the top with some fresh strawberries before serving and it makes it pretty!
You can also change the flavor of the jello to suit your taste or the occasion!
