Creamy Raspberry

I am not sure why it is a tradition to serve a sweet dessert-like salad during dinner, but my kids are thrilled with the idea.  We got this recipe from my mom, who invented it.  It is a great way to use fresh strawberries or raspberries.  It is delicious!

Tip:   When you make the Danish Dessert, be sure to use a saucepan with tall sides because it will usually splatter when it boils and can cause a burn to your wrist as you are stirring.  Can you tell I am speaking from personal experience? :)

Creamy Raspberry Salad

1 pkg. raspberry Danish Dessert (or strawberry, if you are using strawberries instead)
2 cups frozen raspberries
2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Step 1:  Prepare Danish Dessert according to package directions. Pour into a large bowl.

Step 2:  Add frozen raspberries (these will speed the cooling of the pudding).  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in fridge for 1/2 hour.

Step 3:  Whip cream and stir in powdered sugar.  Fold into Danish Dessert and raspberry mixture.  Chill salad until ready to serve.

Makes 7-9 servings
