No Fail Cookie Salad

Over the weekend, I helped host a bridal shower for my niece.  I was in charge of making salads…so I pulled out my old stand by recipe for No Fail Cookie Salad.  This is super easy and it’s always a hit.  If you have little ones, they will love to help you break up the cookies and you’re guarenteed to not have any left overs.

Here’s the recipe.

1 cup buttermilk (If I don’t have it, I mix one cup of skim with 2 T vinegar…it tastes richer with the buttermilk though)
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
2 c Cool Whip
1 package of fudge stripe cookies (I use the generic)

Mix the buttermilk and pudding.  Add the Cool Whip and cookies that are broken into small pieces-bit sized, not crushed.  Chill. 

How easy is that!  If you think ahead, you can save a couple cookies, break them in half and use as a garnish.  Another tip…if you are going to be busy the day you need the salad, break up the cookies in advance and store in a ziplock bag.  This salad does not do well as a left-over.  Make it the day you need it.

This is a standard salad that I make for graduation or other big events.  It’s easily double, tripled or even quadrupled.
