Not your usual salad, but delicious nonetheless!

Salad? Dessert? Either! This sweet, fruity treat would be right at home with your meal or as the perfect dinnertime ending.

To keep the cream cheese mixture from sticking to your spatula as you spread it, just run it under hot water. Does the trick every time! The Test Kitchen
