I was searching for a fruit salad "dressing" using cream cheese and ran across this recipe. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was DELICIOUS! The only difference was I added fresh strawberries to regular cream cheese (I didn't have strawberry cream cheese) and I added the nuts to the mixture to chop it all together. It won rave reviews from all at the table and I am adding it to my "must use" recipes.-24 Oct 2005
My very picky son loved this recipe, as did I. I did just sprinkle the pretzel crumbs on top of the portions that I served, and it did taste better that way than without the pretzels. A great way to get my son (and myself) to eat lots of fruit.-26 Mar 2005
Grandma’s Ambrosia Salad
This creamy fruit salad, commonly known as ambrosia salad, is so yummy and is super easy to make! It’s always a favorite whenever I bring it to a potluck. The coconut and marshmallows are what really put it over the top. It’s super easy too, which is always a bonus! :)
This ambrosia salad is a family recipe that’s very dear to me. The recipe came from my Grandma and is a dish that my whole family loves, especially my Uncle Harold. He would make it every time I came to visit and called it his “special dish.” We all loved it and still try to make it often. It’s now one of my kid’s favorites too! Thanks to my grandma for this delicious ambrosia salad recipe :)
Pinoy Fruit Salad Recipe
Pinoy Fruit Salad is a quick and easy dessert perfect for the warm weather. This dish makes use of canned fruit cocktail, table cream, and condensed milk. The mixture is chilled inside the fridge overnight before serving, to get the best result.
All the ingredients should be available in most supermarkets. Table cream can also be labeled as “media crema” in some stores. Condensed milk or “condensada” is a thick sweet milk that every Filipino knows (or should know). I think that even sari-sari stores carry this product. Back in the days, I use this as a filling for pandesal (which tastes good, especially if you are tired of dipping your pandesal in coffee every time).
This Pinoy Fruit Salad recipe that we have here makes use of one additional ingredient that makes it look and taste better – maraschino cherries. This type of cherries is also called cocktail cherries because it is widely used as an ingredient for cocktails. This is an optional ingredient, so don’t worry if it is not available in your area.
I recommend this recipe to beginners because this does not involve heat. All you need to do is combine all the ingredients, mix, refrigerate, and serve. Sure, it sounds really simple because it is, but the result is more than simple – it is delicious.

Tips on how to make berry cheesecake Fruit salad:
This Berry Cheesecake Fruit Salad, is extremely easy to make, however, we do have a few tips for you, when making it. Here they are:
- Your cream cheese will work best when it is nice and fluffy. In order to get this desired fluffy texture, you may need to leave your cream cheese out for a little bit, to get it to room temperature.When mixing it, be sure to not add any other ingredients to it. Let the hand mixer beat the cream cheese to a smooth and fluffy texture, before adding any other ingredients.If you don’t it may create cream cheese bumps in your salad.
- Other pudding’s won’t work. It needs to be the instant vanilla packet, when making this recipe.
- We also recommend adding the milk little by little, just to get that desired texture. Sometimes when you put ingredients in all at once, it can lead to lumping, or a funky texture.
- If you do decide to use frozen fruit, thaw and dry them with a paper towel before adding them to the salad. If you don’t your salad will get too much moisture in it, and it will turn watery.
- As long as you follow the instructions and the ingredients list, this salad will be perfectly smooth and fluffy without any lumps or flaws.
For this old fashioned fruit salad with whipped cream you’ll need:
- Cream cheese
- Whipped cream
- Chopped pecans
- Powdered sugar
- Mandarin oranges
- Fruit cocktail with cherries
- OR whatever fruit you have on hand or is in season
Mini marshmallows and coconut flakes also go really well in this fruit salad recipe. If you are fan feel free to add some. These are totally optional but ¼ cup of coconut flakes and just a small handful of mini marshmallows are a nice touch to this salad. The great thing about this fruit salad recipe is that the recipe is very forgiving. You can add more or less of what you like. If you don’t have a certain fruit on hand you can use what you have.
Types of Fruit to Add to Jello Salads
When adding fruit to old fashioned cream cheese jello salad, make sure it is very well drained. Too much extra liquid added will prevent jello from setting.
- canned or crushed pineapple (Also tastes great in Raspberry Cranberry Jello Salad!)
- canned mandarin oranges, well drained (For a creamsicle flavored jello, try Orange Jello Fluff Salad!)
- fresh or canned pears
- fresh or frozen strawberries
- berries – blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries
This delicious Cherry Fruit Salad recipe was originally called “pink salad” but I changed it to cherry fruit salad to better reflect what kind of salad this is. Yes, it is pink, but it’s more than just pink! It has a delicious and creamy, cream cheese and cool whip base with fruit cocktail, pineapple, maraschino cherries, walnuts and marshmallows thrown in.
It is really spectacular and sweet enough to be a dessert. Almost everyone who tries this recipe wants a copy. It’s really easy and quick to assemble, too. I recommend leaving it in the refrigerator overnight if that’s a possibility. That way the flavors can mingle with the creamy base.
I love looking through my cookbook and reminiscing about the people who gave me each individual recipe. This recipe was given to my by one of my favorite friends in the early 1980s. Bonnie Rodriguez was a gal who mentored me in cooking, hospitality, and the Christian faith. She loved to try new recipes and I can’t remember any of them failing.
She was the one who spurred me on to trying more recipes out of cookbooks and magazines — recipes that I had never tasted before — rather than just relying on recipes I had sampled. Bonnie brought this salad to a potluck in the very early 1980s and it was an instantaneous hit with our family!
Cherry Fruit Salad has been one of John’s favorite recipes through the decades, too. Many times he would prefer a bowl of this delicious salad over dessert. Anytime we took home leftovers he would have them gone in no time! Part of the reason for that is he loves pineapple, and this recipe has pineapple in it!
I used fresh pineapple this time because I was trying to use it up, and the maraschino cherries that we had on hand were pitted and sliced so that saved a good bit of time on prep work. This is a great salad to take to potlucks, barbecues, block parties, or even family reunions. Because it uses mostly canned ingredients it can be made in the winter time as well, when fresh fruits are not so readily available. I think you’ll love this recipe. We sure do.
When I first posted this recipe in September 2012, I had only been blogging about three months. My first 200 or so posts were taken with an iPhone 3 camera which, while they provided a picture, the pictures were still of a blurry, grainy quality and many times on the dark side as well.
This recipe has always been so popular on my blog I decided to remake it and take pictures again (April 2015) when we had a potluck for our Sunday school class last week. This lovely salad also makes a great side dish for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, and since you make it night before, it can really be a time saver in preparation time.
Cherry Fruit Salad is a fabulous, fluffy salad recipe. One of our all-time favorites!

Creamy Buko Salad Recipe
Creamy Buko Salad Recipeis a deliciously refreshing traditional Filipino dessert prepared with young coconut (buko), fruits, all-purpose cream, condensed milk, and nata de coco and kaong or palm fruit.
One of the popular desserts served in the Philippines is the Buko Salad Recipe or Young Coconut Salad. The coconut is considered one of the most important fruits in the tropics. Nutritionally, it is high in potassium, and the water is rich in minerals. The meat from young coconuts is relatively softer and will glide in your mouth, while older coconuts tend to be more challenging.
What makes the buko the star of this recipe is its distinct flavor and softness and a little crunchiness that it gives even when combined with the other ingredients. Variations include the addition of other ingredients like apples, cheese, peanuts, nata de coco, etc. You need to chill Buko Salad for a couple of hours before serving it to blend all the ingredients and bring out the flavor.
Give Creamy Buko Salad Recipe a try, and you will surely enjoy it.
