Indulgence Moment: Cookie Salad

Cookie Salad ... kind of an oxymoron right? Growing up in a home where a salad was the green, healthy, rabbit food kind of salad, I never knew about these other kinds of salads. But after marrying the mister and eating at his parents, I discovered a whole new meaning to the word "salad." No longer was it the salad from my childhood - now it could include pudding, cool whip, any variety of fruits, sugar... the possibilities are endless! And that's just what cookie salad is - a perfect combination of all those delicious sugary ingredients listed above. Okay, so it may not qualify under the "healthy" tab, but if you're looking for a quick, easy, sweet indulgence - this is for you.
