Strawberry Pie Filling Salad is a super easy fruit salad that is easy to customize. And it could not get any easier! It comes together in minutes and is perfect for your next BBQ or potluck.
Strawberry Pie Filling salad is one of the fruit salads we grew up eating when I was a kid. It has always been a favorite of mine.
It’s so quick and easy that it’s become my go-to recipe for family gatherings and potlucks.
I made this recipe for our family Easter dinner this weekend.
I feel like I bring the same things over and over, but when you’ve got a winner that everyone loves, it’s hard to branch out.
This fruit salad is it for me.
Key to Success #1 – Drain the Fruit Very Well
This fruit salad recipe is very simple to make.
It uses just 5 simple ingredients and four of them are canned items.
The first step is to drain the cans of fruit.
You can pour the fruit into a colander and allow it to drain for a few minutes.
Be sure to shake the colander a few times to encourage the liquid to fully drain.
You can also drain the fruit in the can.
Simply open the can lid but hold the lid over the top of the can as you turn it upside down.
Press the light lightly so that the liquid will drain out more easily.
Key to Success #2 – Slice the Peaches into Smaller Pieces
I like to slice the peaches into smaller pieces so that they are easier to eat.
This step is optional, but I recommend it.
After the peaches are drained, use a paring knife to cut each peach slice into 2-3 pieces so that the are bite-sized.
While you have the knife out, use it to slice the bananas into coins.
I usually use 3-4 bananas in my fruit salad.
You can use more or less depending on how much you like bananas.
If you cannot find pineapple tidbits, you can use larger pineapple chunks.
Slice the pineapple chunks into smaller pieces before adding them to the bowl of fruit salad.
It’s easy – a picture is worth a thousand words
Key to Success #3 – Stir Gently
Once you’ve added all the canned fruit and bananas into the bowl, it’s time to add the strawberry pie filling.
Stir the fruit salad together gently so that you don’t crush the fruit.
Strawberry Pie Filling salad is as simple as draining a few cans, slicing some bananas, and mixing it all together. That’s it!
This recipe is also customizable.
If you want to make Peach Pie Filling Salad, just substitute peach pie filling instead of the peach slices and fresh or frozen (and thawed) strawberries for the strawberry pie filling.
