Banana Split Fluff Salad
3.4 ounce box instant banana pudding
20 ounce can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
8 ounce container Cool Whip
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts + 2 Tablespoons for garnish
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
2 ripe bananas, sliced
10 ounce jars maraschino cherries, halved
1. Stir together the pudding mix and pineapple until dissolved and thickened. Fold in the Cool Whip.
2. Gently stir in the marshmallows, nuts, chocolate chips, bananas, and cherries. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to chill. Makes about 8 cups salad.
– Stir in the bananas right before serving. Or dip the banana slices in lemon juice to keep them from browning too quickly.
