Refrigerator Salad

Posted by Donna:

If I ever need a quick fruit salad to bring to a fellowship meal, funeral, or Ladies' Night Out, this is the one I usually prepare. It's so quick and easy.

1 cup mandarin oranges (drained)
1 small can pineapple chunks or tidbits (drained)
1 cup coconut
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup sour cream (The sour cream blends so well with the other ingredients; plus, it "tones" down all of the sweetness.)

Mix all the ingredients together and store in the refrigerator.

I grew up eating this salad because Mother fixed it all the time. It was a very common staple during those years. There are so many old recipes that have fallen by the wayside. I think this is probably one of them.

I love this easy salad and make it at least once a month. We called it "5 cup salad". Everyone always wants to know what the dressing is...

I know it by the "5 cup salad" name, also. It's funny how recipes go by different names. Isn't it amazing what something as simple as sour cream can do to a fruit salad. Thanks for your comment.
