If you're looking for an easy fruit salad recipe, well this one just couldn't be any easier.
We've always called it Five Cup Salad or 5 Cup Fruit Salad, but in our family's recipe book it's written up as Sour Cream Fruit Salad. You might call it ambrosia, and likely it goes by other yummy names, too.
Cool, fruity 5 Cup Salad would be a nice addition to a holiday menu (the coconut makes me think of Easter), but it works well anytime since it goes together so quickly and easily.
Our Family's 5 Cup Salad Recipe
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 can crushed pineapple or fruit cocktail (or both), drained
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup sour cream
Gently stir together all the ingredients in a bowl. Chill a few hours or overnight before serving. Makes about eight servings.
I often serve this nice, cool fruit salad with chili, but it works equally well with a fancier meal, even on the holiday table. Enjoy!
