When I think of fluff salad, I think of my grandma and aunts. I have those really cool aunts and grandma that make all kinds of things. Things like jean blankets, quilts, porcelain dolls and anything in between. My aunts and grandma were always working on something new when we went over for the holidays.

I also remember eating fluff salad. Fluff salad is one of those salads thats been around for years at our house. We always have fluff salad at thanksgiving and christmas get togethers. I remember always eating it, wondering what the heck it was and who brought it. Being a kid I didn’t care what it was or who brought it. As long as I could eat it, I was a happy girl.

I remember thinking and wondering if fluff salad was suppose to be a dessert or a side dish. My grandma would always set it on the table with the food, so I never really knew. Regardless I always ate it and loved it.

My grandma is no longer with us anymore, so my Aunt Marlys took over bringing the fluff salad. Me being the food blogger and all, I needed to get this recipe and share it with you all. So, the last time I saw my Aunt I asked her to give me the recipe. She was sweet. Her response was, “Oh I don’t know it Cyndi. I just add a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but I’ll try to email you the recipe.”

A few weeks later I got her email, bless her heart. I couldn’t believe how easy this Cherry Walnut Fluff Salad was to make. I always thought it was one of those recipes that was extremely hard to make because we only had it at family gatherings. Was I wrong. This fluff salad takes 10 minutes to throw together and a few hours to set. Now I’m wishing I would of been in the kitchen more with my grandma and aunts. I would love to know all their great delicious recipes.
