Thanks to Dole Sunshine for partnering with me on this warm peach cream salad! I am the creator of this recipe and for the description and information that follows. For a full disclosure, click here!

OK, I’ll readily admit, I’m a peach lover! And, fresh peaches are the best, but when they’re not in season, well, then what in the name of Sam Hill do you do? I’ve got the answer, short and sweet! You buy these Dole Sunshine peaches that come canned or jarred and now they come in this handy dandy Fridge Packs!

Now this Peach Cream Salad is one of those no brainer recipes. One that you can whip up in minutes. And, one that will be absolutely perfect on any occasion from a picnic, cookout to Thanksgiving or another holiday dinner!

Fridge Packs Rock

OK, first of all you’re not going to find the Dole Sunshine Fridge Packs in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. Hummmm, sounds confusing, right? But, certainly not so! This product will typically be found right on the shelves where your find the other delicious Dole canned and jarred fruit. Now, the thing about these fridge packs is that they’re resealable in these BPA-free packaging, which makes it ultra convenient is you just want a few peach slices.

And, there are lots of times when this happens in my house! Maybe peaches with a scoop of ice cream, peaches on my hot oatmeal, or wait peaches on my granola! Another thing about these fridge packs is that the containers are reusable. Yes! That’s just an added bonus because they’re good for storing whatever will fit. From small kids’ toys for traveling to a toddler’s cereal bites. Maybe you want to have some nuts in your car for when you get the hungries. Just pack them in the clean fridge pack container. And, they’re also perfect for camping! You see, you’re getting more bang for your buck! Not only do you get the tasty healthy fruit but there’s the bonus storage container!

Just in case you can’t find them at your local grocer’s, try Amazon! Dole Sunshine Fridge Packs come in four different fruits!

  1. I love most all your recipes. Have used many over and over. However this one was not good. I think the base is OK, maybe use real vanilla pudding would be better. But the Dole jar peaches was the mistake. I have five grandsons. They thought this tasted like baby food. I agree. I would try it again with the base and use fresh peaches with fresh juice.
    I hope this does not hurt your feelings, because all your other recipes are the best!!

    1. Oh, gosh, Jan,, of course not, it doesn’t hurt my feelings! I’m very grateful for your feedback and your grandsons’ (5 of them! wow!) critiques! That’s what recipes are all about, tweaking and making better. Love th eidea of fresh peaches. You’re a sweetheart just to take the time to let me know and give a big high 5 to those boys! xoxx ally
