I’m going to be completely honest with you. Using the word salad in this cherry pie salad is totally deceiving. I mean, I serve it like I would any other summer salad—next to whatever we’ve grilled (usually burgers) along with watermelon, chips and an icy beverage. But this salad is on par with my mom’s pistachio pudding salad in that it tastes like more like dessert than something I can count as my daily recommended serving of veggies.

I love any dish that comes together quickly and easily and can be made with ingredients stored in my pantry. Cherry pie salad totally fits those requirements thanks to six canned/containered/packaged ingredients you toss together and refrigerate.

And yes, I used the word containered.

I know for a fact you can make cherry pie salad a couple days ahead of time and it still tastes great. Yay for make-ahead recipes that cut down on prep time the day you hosting your family party!

Everyone raved about this summer salad except George and Livi, but I think that’s due to the pecans. Neither one is a fan of nuts in their salads. Or desserts. Fortunately the rest of our partygoers were happy to polish off their servings. I think it had something to do with that cherry pie filling.

Go with Comstock Country Cherry Pie Filling & Topping. It’s the best, trust me.

    This sounds absolutely decadent! We grilled pork tenderloin the other night and had it with grilled asparagus and potatoes. Your salad/dessert would have been the perfect finale! Definitely saving this one :)
