I've been enjoying this salad for years. Have never put the coconut or pecans in it though. Not too sure I would like that, but I'm sure many would. Sometimes I crave the cherry, sometimes the blueberry. It's sooo yummy and easy.

This great dessert-salad is often called Pink Fluff or Cherry Fluff. I looked at all the cherry fluff-type recipes before deciding on this one, because I liked the addition of coconut and pecans. I didn't mix the pecans into the salad, but preferred them scattered on top. It tastes like a creamy cherry pie without crust. Very yummy.

Delicious, rich comfort food. My mom made this when I was a kid. I tried blueberry pie filling, and it's terrific, but I think the cherry makes for a prettier salad.

we've made this for years, omitting pinapple and coconut and putting it in a graham cracker crust--- we've taken this to MANY family functions as "pink fluff pie"...mmmmmm

This is sweet salad. It was a hit at at family dinner recently. I used pineapples chunks and omitted the nuts (DS refuses to try anything with any kind of nut). It was especially liked by the youngsters. My Grandaughters will try anything PINK! After the introduction posted - we call this WalMart salad!

Very good. Couldnt be any easier to make. It reminds me of ambrosia. I omitted the nuts and added only 1/2 can of condensed milk. Thanks for the recipe.

This has been a favorite at our house for years!! You're right, there are lots of variations to it! We add mini marshmallows, but not coconut. And, we always have to use cherry pie filling!! This is SO good!!

We love this salad. I use cherry pie filling and pineapple chunks. This is yummilicious and goes very well at parties, with kids big and small! Truly a heart-winner!
