1 – 3.4 ounce box instant banana pudding
1 – 20 ounce can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
1 – 8 ounce container Cool Whip
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts + 2 Tablespoons for garnish
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
2 ripe bananas, sliced
2 – 10 ounce jars maraschino cherries, halved
Stir together the pudding mix and pineapple until dissolved and thickened.
Fold in the Cool Whip with a spatula.
Gently stir in the marshmallows, nuts, chocolate chips, bananas, and cherries.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour to chill. Makes about 8 cups salad.
*Stir in the bananas right before serving. Or dip the banana slices in lemon juice to keep them from browning too quickly.
