i have made this for years, using cherry pie filling, pecans, cool whip, coconut and small marshmellows,, either as a salad alone or you can put this in 2 graham cracker pie shells,,, my family loves it.. hubby especially haha, he is a big eagle brand milk nut haha

Like others, I used this as a "starter" recipe and added the works -- pineapple, marshmellows, cream cheese and nuts. It turned out to be very pretty but not very flavorful. In the future I will cut out the condensed milk and add some cherry Jello to the mix.

I have made something similar to this at Christmas for many years. I start with a softened 8oz. cream cheese and mix it well with the condensed milk. Then add a can of pineapple and the cherry pie filling and cool whip. It is always a hit! Very sweet, but wonderful with ham or ham balls.

I also add pineapple and walnuts, do not even consider leaving out the sweetened condensed milk as this will leave you with a sloppy mess. The SC milk is what thickens it. It will last days in the fridge without becoming runny. It takes just minutes to make and items can be kept on hand for an easy dish to bring to any event.

This is good as is or as a good base for some additions. It is wonderful with pecans or walnuts and some pineapple chucks (well drained or it gets runny). I would recommend keeping it in the fridge for a couple of hours before servng to give it time to set up - it is much better cold....

This is one of our favorites; if you decide to use pineapple (as other versions of this recipe include), be sure to use pineapple tidbits because you can drain them easily. Using crushed pineapple will dilute the whipped topping and make the salad soupy. Pecans work well with this but the recipe stands on its own: creamy, fruity, sweet good stuff. If you make it and serve immediately, it will be creamy and fluffy; if you wait a few hours, it will be firmer but still smooth; just depends on your preference, we like it both ways.
