I love this salad! I think my husband and kids love it even more than I do. It’s simple, delicious and can be made ahead of time. Which is a big bonus during the busy holiday season. It makes a ton, but it’s always one of the first things to go when it makes an appearance at our holiday table. We rarely have more than a days worth of leftovers.
Rather than freezing, you can just chill this in the refrigerator before serving, although I find it holds up very well when frozen, even when thawed completely. Just be sure to drain the pineapple well. If you like some extra crunch, you can also add a cup or so of chopped pecans.
