Last night I thought I had a church function to attend. I was supposed to bring both a salad and the recipe for it. I wanted to bring a strawberry spinach salad, but the store was out of (affordable) spinach. My second choice was cookie salad. (Yum!) I didn't like the fruit that the original recipe called for (Mandarin oranges and pineapple). Not with delicious fudge striped cookies anyway. In typical Angie fashion, I used the original recipe as a guideline and made up my own.
Remember how I said I thought I had a function to go to? Well....turns out I was a week early. Oops. My family ate my salad for dessert instead. Love all around for the cookie salad.
1 lg pkg vanilla pudding
2 cups milk
8 oz cool whip
1 apple, cut in chunks
1 banana, sliced
1 pkg fudge striped cookies
Mix pudding and milk. Let it set in the fridge for 5 minutes. Fold in cool whip. Add fruit. Just before serving crumble cookies and mix those in as well.
