Cherry Fruit Fluff tastes best after being refrigerated for a day. The flavors have time to meld and come together as one, which makes it a really special treat. The more you store this salad, the better it gets. It's best after being stored for at least 24 hours but can last up to 7 days in your fridge!

  • This recipe has quite a few variations it’s obtained over the many years it’s been around. Some people like to use maraschino cherries instead of pie filling. Other add-ins often include sour cream, cottage cheese, chopped pecans, etc.
  • Be sure to cover your salad with plastic wrap when storing in the fridge so it doesn’t dry out. Store for up to a week. Do not freeze.
  • When storing it in the fridge, you’ll want to give it a good fold over a few times, just to distribute the moisture that has usually gone to the top.
  • After being stored a few days, the marshmallows will absorb the liquid and soften, so don’t be alarmed if this happens. It’s normal and actually results in a bolder flavor, in my opinion.
