18 Dessert Salads Ambrosia Salad Jello Salad and More

Dessert Salads are the perfect bring-along dish for parties and potlucks. This collection includes jello salad recipes, ambrosia salads, "fluff" salads made with Cool Whip, and more! These obviously aren't the salad recipes you're used to seeing, but they are just as delicious and in a much sweeter way! Made with jello, canned fruits, Cool Whip, pretzels, marshmallows, cookies and more, these dessert salad recipes are some of the best around and most on this list don't even require an oven. Lucky for you, they are also quick, easy, and inexpensive to whip up, and will be a welcomed addition to any potluck spread.

Fluff Salad Recipes

Strawberry Pretzel Fluff

Dessert salads don't get a whole lot better than these! Fluff salads are basically Cool Whip and other choice ingredients mixed together to create the dessert salad of your dreams. Add whatever ingredients you want to make it even more delicious. From pretzels to marshmallows, there's no limit when it comes to creating these tasty, no-bake desserts.

Ambrosia Salads

Stupidly Easy Ambrosia Salad

I don't know about you, but ambrosia salads were a staple item at any family affair that involved food when I was growing up. My grandma was a huge fan of this recipe and made her own with plenty of mandarin oranges and coconut flakes. The ambrosia salads below take many forms, but all of these old-fashioned dessert salads are sure to bring back memories from your childhood. 

Jell-O Salad Recipes

Strawberry Jello Pretzel Salad

Another delicious variation on a theme -- Jell-O salad. The recipes below are mainly made with fruit, Jell-O and some other element for a little added texture. Whether you like strawberry, orange or pistachio, you'll find recipes for each of these tasty dessert salad recipes below.

Cookie Salad Recipes

Dreamy Fudge Striped Cookie Dessert

Cookie salads are essentially ambrosia salads with cookies mixed right in -- yum! When you refrigerate the salad, the cookie pieces get soft and chewy, but still provide a nice textural contrast to all the creamier elements. This is one of those recipes you just have to try to understand it's appeal, so make it a point to bring one to the next potluck you attend.
