This yummy recipe has been on my ‘to-blog-about’ list for a long time now, and I’m honestly a little surprised it’s taken me this long to get around to posting it. I feel silly calling it a salad, but I’m not sure what other name would fit better, so I’ll just carry on—this salad was a family favorite that was frequently requested when I was a kid, and I make it often for my family now. It’s a delicious quick and easy snack and perfect for a kids’ dessert, but who am I trying to fool . . . we all love it. Not just the kids. Don’t tell him I tattled, but Jeff basically inhales this salad. You did not get this information from me.
As far as I’m concerned, it’s the perfect summer side dish or dessert. It’s lightweight and refreshing and fruity and delicious, and it is perfect as an afternoon snack, a side dish to a barbecue dinner, or as a quick dessert. It almost always makes an appearance at our family cookouts, and I’ve brought it to church events a few times and always, without fail, get a request for the recipe. And being quick and simple and inexpensive to make is a sweet little bonus, too.
Prepare yourself for an intimidatingly long shopping list and a truly daunting series of steps to pull this tricky dish together.
I kid, of course. 4 ingredients, a little stirring, and boom. You are the proud new owner of a perfectly refreshing summer salad.
