A quick and easy, fast 4-ingredient dessert salad or holiday side dish featuring cherry pie filling and pineapple as key flavors. Pink Stuff is sweet, light, and fluffy, it’s a great light dessert or refreshing fruity salad.
Pink stuff is a staple at every family get-together. Every holiday, every picnic, every occasion. My grandma particularly loves it. Whenever she stumbles upon this recipe, she get so excited and always says “Oh, I’m gonna make this for <insert next holiday here>!”
Pink stuff is essentially a base of Cool Whip and sweetened condensed milk, with various fruity mix-ins. It’s really light, fluffy, creamy, and fruity. The most notable ingredient is a can of cherry pie filling that gives it the lovely pink hue! We refer to this dish as a ‘salad’, but it’s really a dessert, in my opinion. A refreshing and light dessert!
Our holidays and get-togethers are not complete without it. I have no idea where the recipe came from originally, but I think my grandma made it first, and we’ve been making it ever since. It’s been around as long as I can remember.
There is NOTHING easier than this Pink Stuff recipe. Dump the 4 ingredients in a bowl, and stir. You’re done. It helps to chill it in the refrigerator, actually, but otherwise, you’re done.
