This is the best fruit salad ever! Everyone loves it and it is so easy and economical to make.
My mom made something very similar to this many years ago, but she used fruit cocktail, and I doubt that she used sour cream. I added slivered almonds that got lost. Next time I would use chopped walnuts instead, and decrease the the sour cream a bit as it turned out awfully gooey.
I found this recipe a few weeks ago and decided to try it, well, honestly I have made it ten times so far!Both my husband and I love it!I did not put the marshmallows in,however I added slivered almonds and vanilla extract to it!It has easily become our favorite dessert!Last night I made it again,and added cubed mango to it,what a treat!
I really enjoyed this recipe, but I haded pecans to the fruit salad, which made it even better, it seem to give the salad more texture. I enjoyed the salad so much that I will make it again.
Quite easy to put together.
This is a great recipe, but I mixed in half of a small jar of marachino cherries cut in half and used half the amount of sour cream and substituted that amount of Cool Whip Free. This cuts a few calories, but adds more flavor.
Although I have not made this particular recipe, I immediately recognized it from my youth. We always drained the pineapple (crushed type) and added the maraschino cherries (cut in half) and a little of the cherry juice, as well as the chopped walnuts. HOWEVER, I never had it as a dessert in a dish -- we always used this recipe (with real whipped cream instead of sour cream) as a FROSTING on a cake. It was my personal favorite as a child, especially on an angel cake. Then, later, when Cool Whip became popular, the real whipped cream was replaced by the Cool Whip and it was still awesome. Several years later, I discovered a line jello salad recipe with these same ingredients (the marshmallows go in with the hot water so they get melty and so does the CREAM cheese (not sour)). Then the drained pineapple, cherries, nuts . . . It is served with a dollop of Cool Whip or whipped cream. Oooh, is THAT good! Thanks for the memories . . . I can't believe I forgot about this recipe bec
This recipe is so-o-o easy and delicious!! Another alternative to this great recipe is substituting the marshmallows w/ chopped pecans or walnuts. It gives it a little more "texture" & "crunch".
My Mother has made this salad for years. The family loves it! The only change she has made is that my family is not real fond of mandarin oranges, so she substituted a can of pitted cherries, sweet or sour works depending on your taste! It gives the salad a beautiful color and a really good flavor!
I have also made this recipes for years. Everyone who likes these ingredients, always gives comments on the dish. Its a great holiday dish.
