No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Salad - Delicious, creamy, light no-bake dessert that's perfect for your Summer parties! No oven needed and everyone always asks for more!

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeeear! Strawberry time!!    They were so cheap, I wanted to celebrate.

But, Hi Ya! Whatcha doin’? How’s your week?! Fingers crossed, everyone is having their best days, yet.

I’m really quite busy doing things like getting our pool passes, inhaling Banana Oats Chocolate Chip Cookies, and watching some stand-up comedy a.k.a. people in politics. Such gems.

In the meantime, I’ve also been looking through my old recipes here on Diethood, trying to figure out which ones I want to ditch/recreate and which ones I would like to update.

In doing so, I ran into this  Easy Peasy Strawberry Dessert ⤵⤵⤵
AKA No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Salad.

⤴Love that photo, don’t you?! It’s from 5 years ago… We’ve come a long way, baby! 😉

Apparently, this Easy Peasy Strawberry Dessert IS legit and has its own name! But here I was, thinking that I made up the creamiest and easiest no bake dessert of ever… wha wha wha whaaaaa. 

However, my recipe is a bit different than the other cheesecake salads as it only includes strawberries, but I also like to add strawberry jam to mine and stay far away from the powdered pudding mix.

The good news is that around here we fly through strawberries like WHOA. As one of the best fruits, the fact that they sit out on the counter and make my kitchen smell all sweet and summery, only helps their cause. Somehow, for our sake, I was able to hide a couple of pounds and make us a better version of that dessert from 5 years back.

Anywho. This is definitely something we are eating now – it’s simple but doesn’t lack flavor whatsoever because, (fat free) cream cheese and homemade whipped cream, and lots of strawberries.

HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE SALAD

It’s ridiculously simple. We’re combining cream cheese with jam, whipping up our own whipped cream – let go of the Cool Whip – and just slicing up some berries. A few hours in the fridge, and tah dahm! See? Easy Peasy! Best, creamiest berry dessert of ever.

So if you don’t feel like making a complete cheesecake from scratch, I am here to tell you that it’s totally OKAY and completely appropriate to whip up something close to it, but without all the work. 4th of July may seem like a perfect time for it! Just sayin’. 😀

  1. Nice and summery, just in time, like the no bake, and of course, “keeping it light” focus of this recipe, and the home-made whipped cream, thank you!

  2. Yumi

    I think the term you want isn’t “salad”. It’s “parfait”… Honestly, though, this looks amazing and delicious!

    1. Hi Yumi!! I thought about that name, too, but according to a few sources, a parfait is an individual serving… thus the reason why I stuck with “salad” since it could mean multiple servings. 😀

  3. I can’t say I’ve ever encountered a cheesecake salad before, but I know it’s going to have to happen for me NOW. This looks amazing! What a great way to feature all those beautiful strawberries that are peak around here right now!
