I love the fresh and delicious berries that are just starting to hit stores. I love fresh fruits! We eat so much fruit here and there that it’s crazy. I always try to think of delicious ways to use my fruit. This is probably my family’s all-time favorite fruit salad. It’s a little sweet, a little creamy and downright delicious. With berries and cream cheese, it’s sure to be a winner!
Yes, I know, you’re looking at the ingredients and thinking this is a dessert, not a salad. It is a salad or dessert. I’ll let you decide. I’ll tell you though, I took it to a big gathering and within minutes it was cleaned up. The berries are very refreshing and the cream cheese fluff is light and slightly sweet. Everyone is going to love this incredible side dish, you won’t have to worry about leftovers, which is a good thing. This salad keeps well for only 2 days. Make this for your next potluck or BBQ and check out the reviews. It’s great!
What you need for Berry Cheesecake

- cream cheese: Leaving the cream cheese out on the counter for an hour will help soften it while you mix it together.
- sugar:It adds to the sweetness! This will change your taste but using less sugar or substituting it for lower-calorie sugar also works.
- calm mind: It is found in the freezer aisle near ice cream. Be sure to thaw it before using it in a cheesecake salad.
- Strawberries: Cut strawberries into quarters or long pieces so that they can be chopped with a large spoon.

Very Berry Creamy Cheesecake Salad Tips and Variations
This salad is almost a dessert, but no one will care, it’s so good!
- Fruits: Look for the ripe, freshest berries you can find. They should be firm, but not flaky, with vibrant color and free of blemishes. Cut the strawberries until they are bite-sized for easy eating. You will not need to cut the berries.
- Frozen Fruits: I don’t like using frozen fruit, as the berries release too much liquid and your salad can become a meaty mess. To help reduce that, you can thaw frozen fruit once it’s thawed, rinsing it with water until it comes out clean. The fruit will still not be as thick and firm, but it will still taste delicious.
- cream cheese: To make sure everything mixes easily, make sure your cream cheese is really soft, and then whisk it well. This makes it easier to mix the berries as well.
- cool whip topping: A great alternative to Cool Whip would be 2 cups of vanilla yogurt.
- sugar: If you are worried about sugar dissolving, use powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar. This will give you a smooth consistency. I like to give regular sugar a little crunch.
- Flavors: You can add a bit of flavor to your salad by adding tsp of vanilla or almond extract. Or add lemon or lime zest for a little zing.
- stir in: Add crumbled chocolate-covered graham crackers, cookies, or even shredded sneakers for something more sweet than a salad.
You’ll love how light and refreshing this salad is, and the fact that it’s slightly sweet means it will go perfectly with a meaty, savory main dish. Perfect for your next potluck or BBQ, this salad brings both color and flavor to the table. I’ll warn you that it’s addictive, so you may want to double the recipe so you’ll have enough.
