Strawberry Fluff Salad
This Strawberry Fruit Salad Recipe is REALLY good and not at all like that nasty fluff stuff my grandma made with Jell-O and marshmallows...and wasn't there cottage cheese or something in it?
UGH I hate cottage cheese and was always disappointed when I realized that it was fluff and not my delicious ambrosia salad. Who does that? Cottage cheese? YUCK!
