Lambert's Pineapple Salad

Does anyone have this recipe? This is one I got off line that says it is the recipe. For some reason I thought maybe it had sweetened condensed milk in it. It just taste like it to me. If anyone knows the recipe for sure please let me know. I would really like to have it. Here is the one I got off line.

Pineapple Walnut Salad

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
4 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup walnuts
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Blend together the pineapple, cream cheese and vanilla. Stir in nuts, fold in whipped topping and chill before serving.

DH ALWAYS orders this salad as one of his 'sides' at Lambert's! I'll make it and see if he 'recognizes' it! Thanks for posting.

That's powdered sugar, probably used as a thickening or binding agent.

Shouldn't add too much sweetness to the flavor.

I"m not arguing one way or the other here :faint, but your statement that the 'powdered sugar' would not add too much sweetness to the salad perplexed me! Doesn't powdered sugar act as a sweeting 'agent'? I've just always assumed it does!

It's my belief that powdered sugar is not as sweet as granulated; thus, my statement.

Anyone correct me....?

I've made it with the powered sugar and in my opinion it gives it more of a thickening than anything being really too sweet. My suggesting would be to add 1 T at a time and mix it up take a little taste and see what you think.

Anyone that has every had it has really enjoyed and was really surprised to learn about the vanilla, almond and powered sugar were ingredients.

In fact I'm having some friends over for dinner next week and will be serving this salad with Paul Deen's Wild Rice Chicken Casserole and her well known bisquits/mini muffins
