I grew up eating this salad! A wonderful way to make it is to use vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. It adds a bit of sweetness without overpowering it. (My mom said she has made it with pina colada yogurt and that was really good.) Whenever I make this to bring places I leave out the coconut because there are many people who do not like coconut. They always rave on it and it's so simple to make:-). Read More

I have been making this recipe since I was first married 20 years ago! It is awesome just the way it is written. It's best if you make it a day ahead though. Make sure to drain the friut very well so there is no runny stuff in the bottom of the bowl. Read More

Very simple recipe but wonderful. My oma used to take the coconut and put a little food coloring on it to suit the seasons; green for St. Pattie's day red for Christmas pink for easter etc. Thanks for sharing this. Gives the salad just a slight color which is pretty cool. Read More

Wonderful! Fast and easy! The only thing I did different I used half the amount of sour cream and used cool whip to replace it. Everyone loved it! Read More

This was a refreshing side dish. I used pineapple chunks instead of crushed; I thought it was easier to eat this way. Might try using yogurt instead of sour cream next time. Read More

I've always enjoyed this salad. I needed to take something to a church function and had everything except the mandarin oranges. I had a 10 oz jar of marachino cherries. I just drained them and added them to the mixture. It turned out great! This stuff is almost a dessert. Read More

This reminds me so much of my Grandma and sleeping over at her house with my cousin. She always had these ingredients on hand for us because it's so easy for anyone to make. The only difference is that our recipe calls for 1 cup or 8 oz of each: 1 cup marshmallows 1 cup coconut 8 oz sour cream 8 oz mandarin oranges 8 oz crushed pineapple. Of course I think the oranges & pineapple may just come in 11 oz cans but we never cared since we both love pineapple & oranges. Read More

The presentation is beautiful. The taste is out of this world. A not too sweet fruit salad. I cut back on the marshmallows...just personal preference. Thanks Trece great salad. Read More

YUM YUM! Very easy and yummy! My family does Thanksgiving twice each year (Thurs & Sat). I made a different "Ambrosia" salad that called for whip cream (cool whip) on Thurs. then this one on Sat. This version is SO much better! Don't be fooled by the sour cream instead of the whip cream it still very sweet but not overly sweet like the other. This is the one that will go into my recipe box. Thanks!!! Read More
