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.
