Banana Split Salad

This salad is just perfect for those hot summer days when you are looking for a great cool salad that not only looks pretty, but tastes equally delishes.

Straight from a Paula Deen magazine, this comes from one in 2007 and I first made this for a group of ministers wives who thought it was grand.

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (12 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 (21 oz) can cherry pie filling

3 medium bananas, sliced

1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple, drained

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup shredded sweetened flaked coconut

1 cup slices fresh strawberries

Garnish: chopped pecans, shredded coconut, sliced strawberries

In a large bowl, combine milk and whipped topping until well blended. Fold in next 6 ingredients and chill until ready to serve. Garnish as desired with above ingredients.

* I head a quote today from two ladies who have a great blog called Twochums that, “you should always treat your family like guests and your guests like family.” Isn’t that a great way to make family and friends equally feel so welcome and wanted in your home. Thank you Jackie and Robin for sharing that. It is worth quoting over and over.
