How to Make Million Dollar Rice Salad
- Combine cream cheese, sugar and mayonnaise and whip until smooth. Fold in rice, cherries, pineapple and marshmallows and blend gently.
Fold in Cool Whip and pecan if desired.
Original recipe calls for whipped Dream Whip according to package directions.
I prefer to us the Cool Whip.
