This strawberry delight salad by Catherine’s Plates on YouTube is a 1950s vintage dessert that requires only 5 ingredients. I love vintage and retro desserts because they are fun to recreate. It’s an easy and simple recipe that requires no baking. No-bake dessert recipes are fun to make because they are fast. I feel like this would be a refreshing and light dessert because it’s almost all whipped topping or Cool whip as a base. Strawberry is one of my favorite desserts, and I think this would be an amazing summer dessert. I think it’s a pretty dessert salad when you add the strawberries on top. This would be great for a family gathering or potluck.



  • 1 (14 oz) can sweeten condensed milk, chilled in the refrigerator
  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, drained well
  • 1 (21 oz) can strawberry pie filling
  • 16 oz heavy whipping cream or cool whip
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or other favorite nut variety


First, in a large mixing bowl, use an electric hand mixer or stand mixer. Beat the sweetened condensed milk until double the size and white in color. Mix in the drained pineapple and strawberry pie filling. Continue to watch Catherine’s Plates tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.

Next, once the whipped topping or Cool whip is mixed and combined, add in chopped pecans. Pour the mixture into a 9×13 inch baking dish or large serving bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator to chill for 1-2 hours.

Add sliced strawberries on top for the presentation and more texture in the strawberry salad. This is an interesting strawberry dessert because it’s a lot of fluff. It’s creamy but still has the freshness from the fresh strawberries. Also I like how there are a combination of textures in this recipe too.
