I made this just as the recipe states and it was delicious. It is not as sweet as some fruit salads which we particularly liked. The sour cream along with the sweetness of the marshmallows creates a lovely balance. I will make this again... and again! Read More

Awesome! Made 6x version for a large church group of oldies and they loved it. None left and many compliments. So many had not tried this sour cream version and enjoyed it much more than the whipped cream/cool whip one. Read More

As simple as this is, I made it & took it to church. EVERYONE RAVED about it! Crazy, right? I didn't have mini marshmallows so cut regular size into 4 pieces each. Read More

I made this for Easter and my family loved it! Go for the double recipe if taking to a potluck or it won't be enough. Will make again. Read More

Even with the sour cream it was still a little on the sweet side for my tastes. I wasn't sure whether to use sweetened or unsweetened coconut same with the mandarin oranges so I'll do unsweetened next time. I think it could also use a splash of lemon. Also - I threw in a half cup of pecans. My friends at the party loved it. I will definitely make it again with a few tweaks to the recipe. I do love how easy it is. A perfect thing to throw together in a rush. Read More
