I was shopping in Wal-Mart, when an elderly lady came up to me and just started talking about this great dessert salad that she was planning to make. I went home and tried the recipe, and my husband and children fell in love. Now we make it at least 1 time a week. There are different variations of the salad, so I have given choices in the recipe based on your preferences. The can sizes are approximate.
- In a large bowl, mix together the Cool Whip and sweetened condensed milk.
- When completely mixed, add in all other ingredients.
- Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
