Raspberry Cream Cheesecake Salad Tips and Variations
This salad is almost a dessert, but no one cares, it’s so good!
- fruit: Look for the most ripe, fresh berries you can find. It should be firm, but not underripe, brightly colored and free from blemishes. Cut the strawberries into bite-size slices for easy eating. Berries that you won’t need to cut.
- frozen fruit: I don’t like using frozen fruit, because berries secrete a lot of liquid and your salad may get a mess. To help alleviate this, you can rinse the frozen fruit, once thawed, with water until it is clear. The fruit will not remain plump and firm, but it will still taste delicious.
- Cream cheese: To make sure everything blends smoothly, make sure the cream cheese is really soft, then whisk it well. It also makes it easy to mix up the berries, too.
- Cool Whip ToppingA great alternative to cold whisking is two cups of vanilla yogurt.
- sugar: If you are concerned about the sugar dissolving, use powdered sugar instead of granulated. It will give you a smoother consistency. I kind of like a little bit of regular sugar.
- Flavors: You can add a little flavor to your salad by adding ½ teaspoon of vanilla or almond extract. Or add lemon or lime peel for a little zing.
- bang in: Add chocolate-covered graham crackers, crackers, or even chopped Snickers for an even more sweet treat than a salad.
You’ll love how light and refreshing this salad is, and the fact that it’s a bit sweet means it will pair perfectly with a hearty and delicious main course. Perfect for your next meal prep or barbecue, this salad brings color and flavor to the table. I will warn you that they are addictive, so you may want to double the recipe until you have enough.
