Fluffy, Creamy, Fruity!
Ok so it’s not really a typical “salad” – it is a dessert salad! Fresh ripe berries are folded into a fluffy cheesecake filling along with some mini marshmallows that get all melty!
I first tried this type of salad from Mandy at South Your Mouth! It’s a recipe I’ve used in my KitchenAid on QVC stand mixer and hand mixer demonstrations in the past, but I would always swap out the Cool Whip with my Stabilized Whipped Cream and make the batch a little smaller. So, I finally decided to write up the recipe with my changes.
It’s a great salad to bring to summer get-togethers, especially Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day – as it is a crowd pleaser and red, white and blue! Make sure to keep it cool!
You can make Berry Cheesecake Salad a few hours in advance. If you need to make a day in advance, it’s really fine, but the berries will start to get soft and “bleed” into the filling a little. You could fold the berries in at the last minute or reserve some berries to top the salad with and “freshen it up”.
