Cookie Salad Recipe

Cookie salad is a surprising yet beloved classic dish. Despite its Unconventional combination of ingredients, it never fails to impress. Originating in the Midwest, it has been enjoyed by many for generations. If you’re a fan of cookie salad, you’ll likely enjoy other desserts like Piggy Pie Dessert and Blueberry Lemon Haven Dessert.

What is Cookie Salad

“Cookie salad recipe is a Midwest classic that defies expectations with its unique combination of ingredients.”

But my previous easy Almond Joy cookies recipe with a few ingredients is also very delicious.

What is Cookie Salad?

Cookie Salad is a unique recipe that blurs the line between salad and dessert. It’s a fluffy dish with scattered cookie crumbs. It’s a no-bake recipe, making it ideal for brisk summer evenings.

Ingredients & Substitutions

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • vanilla pudding
  • Buttermilk (homemade buttermilk can be used if not available)
  • Whipped topping (homemade whipped cream or store-bought)
  • Pineapple
  • Mandarin oranges
  • Fudge stripe cookies

Despite the seemingly odd combination, Cookie Salad is a delightful treat. It’s a hit at gatherings, as I learned when I brought it to a neighborhood event.

Instruction Cookie Salad Recipe

Instruction

Here are the instructions to make Cookie Salad:

  • In a large bowl, mix the pudding mix and the buttermilk until thick. You can use a whisk or a hand-held mixer for this step.
  • Fold in the whipped topping until well combined.
  • Add in the pineapple and mandarin oranges, stirring until evenly distributed.
  • Chill the mixture until ready to serve.

Chill the mixture

  • Just before serving, crush cookies and mix them into the salad. Reserve a few for garnish.
Fudge Stripe Cookies in an Orange-Pineapple Salad?

Fudge Stripe Cookies in an Orange-Pineapple Salad

Adding fudge stripe cookies to an orange-pineapple salad may seem unusual, but trust me, they’re essential to the flavor of this classic cookie salad. Just a tip add them before serving to retain their crispiness. To prepare them, you can either crush them in a sealed plastic bag or cut them with a knife.

Wondering how to serve Cookie Salad?

Wondering how to serve Cookie Salad?

 While some recipes don’t mention chilling, we prefer it cold to maintain its flavor and freshness, especially since it contains buttermilk. You can serve it in a large bowl with additional crushed fudge stripe cookies on top, allowing everyone to add as much or as little as they want. Alternatively, you can serve it in individual portions, each topped with a whole cookie for a fun presentation and easy dipping.

Why Does This Cookie Salad Recipe Work?

This cookie salad recipe is popular for several reasons:

  •  Everyone loves this dessert salad filled with cookies and mandarin oranges.
  • This whipping is incredibly quick, taking only 10 minutes to prepare.
  • It is versatile. While we label it as a side, others consider it a dessert, and you can get creative with add-ins to suit your taste preferences.
Should I Use Buttermilk Or Milk?

If you don’t have buttermilk, regular milk works just as well. Buttermilk adds nutrition and thickness, while skim milk reduces calories.

Extra Add-In Ideas.

Here are some extra add-in ideas to elevate your Cookie Salad:

  • Crushed or tidbits of pineapple, drained
  • Sliced bananas
  • Mini marshmallows
 Variations to Cookie Salad Recipe

Variations to Cookie Salad

Looking to switch up your Cookie Salad? Here are a couple of ideas:

  1. Try a Cookie Salad Trifle: Make a batch of Cookie Salad as usual, then layer it with whipped topping and crushed fudge stripe cookies in a trifle dish. Repeat the layers and chill until serving time.
  2. Indulge in a Cookie Salad Pie: Prepare  cookie salad recipe according to the recipe, then pour it over a prepared graham cracker, shortbread, or chocolate crust. Top with whipped topping and more crushed cookies, then chill until ready to serve.

Cookie looks can be deceiving

When I stumbled upon this dish, I thought it was potato salad, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a sweet and creamy treat with cookies.

The  cookie salad recipe is so delicious, it can easily pass as a dessert or side salad. Either way you and your guests are in for a treat.

As long as we stick to the classic fudge stripe cookie version, feel free to get creative. You can experiment with different cookies and ingredients to create variations like Oreo Cookie Salad or Mandarin Orange Cookie Salad. I find the fudge strip and Oreo varieties the most appealing.

 I hope this recipe brings as much joy to your home as it does to mine.
