I don’t normally go for anything with marshmallows…unless it’s smores or hot chocolate. I found this recipe for a Peachy Salad in one of my Taste of Home magazines. I debated on it for a couple weeks, all because of those pesky marshmallows.
I am so glad I gave it a try! The marshmallows start to dissolve with all the fruity goodness and give a little extra airy texture to the salad. I decided to change up some of the fruits from the original recipe to create my own flavor combo.
Every Friday we have pizza and a movie night. It’s the one night of the week the kids really look forward to, and I don’t have to fight anyone to eat their dinner. Sometimes we’ll have bread sticks, or chips, or other not so good for you sides with it. After all, it’s supposed to be a fun night right?
When I made the Tropical Salad I thought it would make a great side for pizza while the marshmallows kept it fun and exciting for the kids. I think for once I ate more of my side than I did the pizza. It was amazing!!
