Recipe Notes
  • Make sure that you drain the pineapple really well before adding it to your bowl. I like to squeeze out the extra liquid with a dish towel to make sure that the salad isn't watery.
  • When adding the Cool Whip to the salad, be sure to gently fold it in to the mixture. You want to maintain as much of the airy, fluffy texture as possible.
  • You can prepare this recipe in advance and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 days.
  • Feel free to add some chopped pecans to this fruit salad as well!
  • Garnish with additional marshmallows, coconut, or rainbow sprinkles, if desired!
  • Make a Cool Whip Fruit Salad with Mandarin Oranges by substituting a can of the oranges in lieu of the pineapple.
  • Prepare a Strawberry Cool Whip Fruit Salad by using a can of strawberry pie filling instead of the cherry pie filling.
  • Any variety of Cool Whip or other whipped topping will work. Just make sure that it’s thawed in the refrigerator before you fold it into the salad.
