Champagne Salad

Comment on this recipe

Can be made and served immediately, too, without freezing. Very good either way.

Ingredients

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese (can use low fat)
3/4 cup sugar
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
1 package (10 ounces) frozen strawberries, with juice
2 bananas, sliced
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 container (16 ounces) Cool Whip or whipped topping

Instructions

Soften and blend cream cheese with sugar. Mix together drained pineapple, strawberries with juice, bananas, chopped nuts and Cool Whip. Combine the two mixtures. Put in a 9x13-inch pan. Freeze solid. To serve, thaw slightly and slice or cut into squares. Return unused portions to freezer. Note: bananas do not darken.
