Reviews for Banana Split Salad
"It was super easy to put together and totally refreshing. I made it for a dessert on a really hot day so it was a very welcome treat.There are lots of buried "treasures" in it. Pieces of fresh tasting strawberries throughout , subtle pineapple bits , and crunchy nuts (I used pecans) all enclosed in a cold and creamy base.I preferred it very cold - just served about 10 minutes after removing it from the freezer. It can also be very a very "custom" dish. I can see Frozen raspberries in it's future. Very nice."
"I made this salad today and it was delicious. It has been added to my favorite recipes. I made it exactly as written and it was quick and easy to prepare. It could almost be a dessert. A definite winner! Since I first made this, my husband wants one in the freezer all the time. I cut it in squares the first time I take it out of the freezer and in that way, it is easier to serve each time. A huge winner at our house. (And, we eat it as dessert!)"
