Frozen Fruit Salad



Domestic Muse is having a wonderful contest on her site....Everything Old Is New Again and VINTAGE APRON Giveaways. She is having 3 categories to her contest, main dish, dessert and side dishes. She will pick 1 winner from each and they will receive on of the cutest hand made vintage looking aprons I have ever seen. I have decided to enter into 2 of the categories, main dish and dessert, finding the vintage recipes were so much fun to look for and to create. This entry is for the dessert category, this recipe comes to me from my great grandmothers hand written recipe book. This book is so old it is almost impossible to read the pages anymore. My mother has made this recipe every year ever since I was a little girl, my entire family just loves it.


6 oz. - Soft Cream Cheese
1 C. - Mayo
1 C. - Heavy Whipping Cream
1 C. - Maraschino Cherries ( cut in half )
2 ½ C. - Crushed Pineapple ( drained )
1 C. - Mini Marshmallows

Place in a bowl the cream cheese and mayo then with an electric mixer cream together until smooth. Stir in the cherries, pineapple, and marshmallows then mix well. Beat the cream until stiff peaks form then fold gently into the fruit mixture. Spoon into a casserole dish, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm. Cut into serving pieces and enjoy.

I ADORE vintage recipes! It always feels like magic perusing someone's old cookbook or old recipe file. Then, to find a gem like this! How fun.

It looks good! I actually posted a similar recipe to this on my site this week. Actually mine's a pistachio dessert, but I posted some variations on the recipe that are very similar to this.

I don't know how I didn't see this post before! I love it! What a neat recipe from your family. I've never had a frozen fruit salad - I will definitely try this!

My gram made something similar but with mandarin oranges instead of cherries. I don't have her recipe, but this looks like a good substitute that will bring back memories. Thanks for sharing!
