Here is a light and fluffy dessert that was perfect for our weekend of camping with my family. I made it up and refrigerated it until we were ready to eat and the kids couldn't get enough of it. They were asking for more still the next day!! It was a fabulous summery dessert...
Sweet Lemonade Salad
(recipe found at www.ohmysugarhigh.com)
2 1/4 cups butter flavored cracker crumbs (about 64 crackers)
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
2 cans (14 ounces each) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (12 ounces) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained (optional for garnish)
6-8 maraschino cherries (optional for garnish)
Mix together cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar before pressing mixture into ungreased 13x9" baking dish. Set aside. In a bowl, combine milk and lemonade concentrate until smooth and mixture starts to thicken. Fold in whipped topping then pour mixture over crust. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Garnish with oranges and cherries by arranging oranges in flower shape and using cherries for center if desired.
