"I have made this several times but always use non-fat or light for the buttermilk and whipped topping. A little bit healthier this way. This is more a dessert than a salad I think also."

"I've been making this recipe for years. My first comment is that I always push to classify it, name it, as a dessert, not a salad. It is not a salad by any stretch of the imagination. But it is a delicious dessert that my family loves. I used to make it with butter pecan pudding but I can only find that now at an Amish market a bit away from my home, so I substitute either pistachio or vanilla pudding from the supermarket if I need to. I prefer it after it sits a day, to let the cookies soften. If you have not ever had this or a similar recipe, it is worth a try. The flavor combinations are awesome."
