Five-cup Salad

–From Cheryl H.

Cheryl introduced us to this refreshing salad when we were all living in Miami. Cool and sweet, it’s great as a side dish or a dessert! Her original recipe is below. My shelf-stable changes are in parenthesis. I love that I can make something so fresh tasting out of shelf-stable items. –Mellyn¬†


  • ¬†1 1/2 cups canned pineapple, drained (20-ounce can)
  • 1 1/2 cups canned mandarin oranges, drained (15-ounce can)
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut (I use 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows (I use 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream (I use 6-ounces vanilla yogurt made from Robin’s recipe and flavored with a little sugar and vanilla)
  • 1/2 chopped pecans, if desired
  • maraschino cherries, if desired for a garnish
  1. Combine marshmallows, sour cream (or yogurt) and coconut.
