My favorite fruit salad recipe of all time is the 5 cup salad. There’s something in the way the marshmallows dissolve a bit in the sour cream to make a wonderfully sweet yet slightly tart flavor. I’ve tweaked the recipe Mema has written down (I don’t like coconut and I add different fruit). Really, you can add any fruit you want – in the salad above I added fresh strawberries, apples, pineapple, & mandarin oranges. Just add more marshmallows and sour cream if you’ve added more fruit.
1 c. mandarin oranges
1 c. pineapple chunks (or tidbits)
1 c. small marshmallows
1 c. shredded coconut
1 c. sour cream
Mix all ingredients together, gently folding in the sour cream & marshmallows. Allow to sit in the fridge a bit before serving so the marshmallows and sour cream will have time to mix.
