Oreo Salad

Today is our son's birthday. Every year he is so excited to celebrate his special day. One year his home manager brought this salad for his birthday and it's been a favorite of his ever since. His eyes will light up when he sees this bowlful arriving at the party. Actually I find this is more of a dessert but it's called a salad. Fruit can be added if desired. You would add fruit at the same time as the cookies. This recipe is adapted from Kraft's website.
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 - large packages instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 - 1 litre container of whipped topping
  • 2 packages Oreo cookies, chopped in coarse pieces. 
  1. Combine milk and both packages of pudding in a large bowl. Whisk until pudding sets up.
  2. Stir in whipped topping until well combined.
  3. Chop cookies into coarse pieces. Put a few chopped cookies aside to decorate the top.
  4. Fold cookie pieces into creamed pudding mixture. Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  5. Serves: 15 


  1. I'm with you, Betty. I'd call it a dessert!

  2. Our grandchildren's favorite salad! Can't have a family meal without it.

  3. Just wondering if if I can use this Oreo salad as frosting on cupcakes? Am making cookies and cream cupcakes this coming weekend. I prefer less sugar on cupcake frosting. Will be good for me (diabetic). I am sure, parents will agree with me if I serve their children less sugary treat. Thanks very much.

    1. I think it would taste great as a frosting. I hadn't thought of that, thank you for the idea!

    2. thanks very much Ms Betty
