CAN YOU MAKE A LIGHTER VERSION?
You definitely can! Swap out the regular cream cheese for the ⅓ less fat cream cheese, and you can also use lite cool whip for a just as tasty, but lighter version.
CAN YOU USE DIFFERENT FRUITS?
Of course! You can add in whatever fruits you’d like, but here are a few options I think would work best in this salad:
CAN YOU USE FROZEN FRUIT?
I would advise against it. The frozen fruit will add excess moisture to the salad creating a soggy, mushy mess.
CAN IT BE MADE AHEAD?
This salad is best when served fresh, and eaten fresh. The earliest I’d recommend making it is the morning of whatever event you plan on serving it for.
HOW LONG DOES BERRY CHEESECAKE SALAD LAST?
This salad is best eaten fresh, so I recommend eating it the same day you make it.
