Well, since I had my Paula Deen magazines out, I had another recipe that I wanted to try. It came from the May/June 2008 issue. This 5-cup fruit salad sounded so easy, I had to give it a try. You do have to plan ahead for this salad. It has to chill for 8 hours.
I was also worried how it was going to taste with the sour cream, but the sweetness from all the other ingredients adds to the flavor as it sits in the refrigerator. It was so easy and delicious.
It’s as easy as using a drained can of pineapple and a drained can of mandarin oranges. Then you add in some flaked coconut and miniature marshmallows. Last you need is some sour cream to combine everything together. Mix and allow to sit in the fridge for the 8 hours. That’s it.
I do wish my family loved coconut as much as I do. I’ll have to make this fruit salad when I am going somewhere else, like a potluck.
