Substitutions and Variations
- Use other pie fillings to change the flavor. Try this Blueberry Fluff.
- Use colored mini marshmallows instead of white mini marshmallows. You can also use regular sized marshmallows, but I’d recommend cutting them into smaller pieces.
- Add 2 sliced ripe bananas instead of the pineapple chunks. You can also use crushed pineapple in place of the pineapple chunks if you wish.
- Substitute shredded coconut or coconut flakes in place of the pineapple chunks.
- Substitute another type of nut in place of pecans. Try chopped walnuts or almonds. You can also leave out the nuts.
Store any leftover salad in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
I don’t recommend freezing it because there may be some texture changes. It’s best served fresh.
Can I Make In Advance?
Yes, you can make it in advance up to a day before you want to serve it. Store in the fridge, covered, until you are ready to serve.
- Make sure you drain the liquid from the can of pineapple chunks. Don’t include the pineapple juice from the can in the salad.
- The Cool Whip should be thawed out before you use it.
- Serve it cold. After you are done preparing the recipe, place in the fridge so it’s nice and chilled when you are ready to eat it.
