No-brainer Recipe: Marshmallow Fruit Salad

I had this delicious fruit salad a lot growing up. A typical 5 Cup Fruit Salad is very similar, but this fruit salad utilizes fresh strawberries and bananas, and omits the coconut. Totally delicious and comforting.

I am using my best guess on amounts for this recipe. Please use your best judgment and increase or decrease the fruit amounts listed to suit your tastes.


Marshmallow Fruit Salad

Yield: Makes 8-12 servings


1 large can pineapple tidbits - drained
2 small cans mandarin oranges - drained
2 large sliced bananas
1 pint sliced strawberries
1 package mini marshmallows
1 small container sour cream (8 oz)

Note: You can use more or less than a package. It all depends on how much you love mallows.


1. Mix all ingredients and let it sit in the fridge for a short while so flavors can develop.

    if you save the pineapple juice you can soak bananas in the juice so they don’t turn brown works with apples also.
