This cheesecake fruit salad is awesome for a side at a potluck or BBQ or even as a dessert! Plus it’s so easy it’s foolproof!
How Do You Keep Fruit Salad Fresh?
Add a little lemon or lime juice to your fruit salad to stop fruits from oxidizing, and keep your fruit salad in the refrigerator to keep it from going mushy.
This should keep your salad “fresh” for at least the following day
Ummmmm I could eat this cheesecake fruit salad for the rest of my life and die happy. Seven years ago we posted this recipe and I’ve been waiting all winter for berry season to hit so we could bring this recipe back to the front for everyone to enjoy.
It’s sweet deliciousness. It seems a little wrong to take all of those healthy berries and turn them into a calorie fest with everything you put in this dish, but guess what, WORTH IT!!
Seriously, you should all make this on a perfect sunny day and eat outside with the family. Or maybe take it to a BBQ so everyone can ask you what the amazing recipe is.
Is Fruit Salad a Salad or a Dessert?
Refreshing fruit salad is perfect as a side dish or a healthy dessert.
I looooooove how creamy it is and the cheesecake pudding gives it so much more deliciousness!!! And the best part is that it’s easily adaptable to any personal preferences, add blueberries, forget the peaches, etc.
Where Can I Find Cheesecake Pudding Mix?
Jello brand makes it, you should find it in any grocery store where they sell pudding/gelatin.
Bookmark it, print it, write it down, do whatever you do to save a recipe and make this soon! Looking for a healthier berry salad? No problemo! We have this awesome Triple Berry Spinach Salad with Candied Pecans or see the bottom of the post for more ideas!
