Reviews for Frozen Cranberry Banana Salad
"I make this frozen dish frequently as an afternoon snack for teenaagers. I now add very little whipped topping. It is very sweet on its own and reminds the boys more of a snack then a salad. Makes a great 'refresher' after a hot afternoon of yard work!!"
"What a great dessert! Because I wanted to use it as a salad, I left out the sugar. Still a bit sweet for what I want in a salad. Next time I'll try replacing some of the whipped topping with sour cream or Greek yogurt. Might give is just the bite I prefer for a salad. But for a dessert, it's quite marvelous just the way it is!"
"This is an absolutely marvelous dessert served partially frozen or fresh from the fridge. It's a keeper recipe I will make often-great for summer or winter holidays."
"This has become one of our favorites! I never add the sugar but sometimes add a sprinkle of sugar free jello if needed."
