Cookie Salad – Yummy Side Dish Or Dessert

I had a family bbq this weekend, and had to come up with a dish to bring with little notice.  Luckily, we have been making this salad for years, and it is always a hit wherever you bring it!

cookie salad, #easyrecipes, #recipes, #easy, #jellosalad,  #cookies, #pudding, #bananas, #mandarinoranges, #food


2 cups buttermilk

1 small box of vanilla pudding

1 small container cool whip

1 large jar mandarin oranges drained

3-4 medium bananas sliced

1 package pecan sandies cookies (If you have a nut allergy, you can get just sandies without the pecans)

Begin by mixing your buttermilk with your vanilla pudding mix and whisk until combined. Once combined add your container of cool whip.

Gently fold in your sliced bananas and drained oranges.

Now crush your cookies in a ziploc baggie.  They don’t need to be super fine, it is ok for there to be some chunks.  Once they are crushed, pour them into the salad.

Mixture will be fairly runny.  Cover and cool in the fridge to let it set up.  If you won’t be serving this soon, you can wait to put the bananas in until you are ready to serve.  Makes a large sized dish and serves several descent sized servings.  Can also be made lighter by using sugar free or light cool whips, and pudding mixes.
