Us Gramas use to make a five cup salad with fruit and marshmallows, do you remember it? I still get requests for that five cup salad recipe, and although I love it, I have to admit its not really a salad. This recipe for No Bake Pineapple Dessert is dessert version of that recipe. All layered on a crunchy easy to make graham cracker crust.
