5 cup salad

5 cup salad

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.
