How to Make Pom-Pom Salad - Steph


  1. Whip the cream until stiff. Drain the fruit cocktail, oranges and cherries. Add all of the above ingredients except the walnuts. Pour into a large mold or bowl. Refrigerate overnight. Sprinkle walnuts on top. If you prefer more nuts, add them.
  2. This is a pretty versatile salad. You can almost add any kind of fruit you prefer. If you don't like walnuts, add pecans. I think canned peaches would be a great addition too. ENJOY!
