This "Pineapple Fluff" is one of those yummy dessert salads we love so much in the south! I really liked this one, because it wasn't overly sweet and little lighter! My husband loves anything pineapple, so he really liked it! I served this for Easter! It's also perfect for warmer weather, when you want something sweet, but don't want to turn the oven on! Here is what you will need;
1 (8 oz. pkg.) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (20 oz.) can of crushed pineapple, drained well
1 (15 oz.) can of mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, divided
1 (8 oz.) container of frozen whipped topping, slightly thawed
Beat the cream cheese with the confectioner's sugar until it's fluffy. Add the vanilla and blend it in. Add the mandarin oranges and the pineapple and beat on low just to combine and break up the orange segments a little. Add half of the nuts to the mixture. Fold in the whipped topping until the it is all combined. Pour into a serving dish or bowl and sprinkle the other half of the nuts on top. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving!
This will be great for Spring and Summer events!
