Cookie "Salad"

(This recipe was first posted in conjunction with the Meijer Ad Week of 5/27/12 - 6/2/12)

This "salad" is a fun change from the average jello.  It's definitely kid-friendly, both in flavor and ease of preparation.  The combination of ingredients might sound a little strange, but it's actually pretty good!

1 - 3 oz box instant vanilla or coconut cream pudding
1 C milk
1 tsp vinegar
1 - 8 oz container Cool Whip, thawed
1 - 20 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1 - 11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 pkg fudge-stripe cookies, crushed

Mix milk and vinegar, then beat in pudding for two minutes.  Add Cool Whip and fruit.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Add crushed cookies just before serving. 

Options and Tips
  • Substitute canned peaches, pears, or fruit cocktail for the mandarin oranges.
  • Warning:  leftovers do not keep very well...the cookies get soggy after a day or so.
    I got this recipe from a copy I made...not sure where it came from!
