This is a great fruit salad that I make during the Holidays. I omit the coconut and add walnuts or pecans instead, and also add a drained jar of halved maraschino cherries. This recipe is great to make to taste, use the fruits in syrup for a sweeter taste and the fruits in juice for a nice light fresh taste! I also use the pineapple tidbits instead of the chunks to make it easier to eat. Adding more marshmallows makes it drier just in case there's too much juice. And it's better the next day!

Made this, except swapped the sour cream for vanilla greek yogurt, and added walnuts & nectarines and it was awesome. Creamy, tangy, and sweet. Would make an excellent healthy breakfast with the yogurt swap (and maybe minus the marshmallows...)

My mother-in-law makes this recipe, and it's so easy and good. I also add halved maraschino cherries, bananas, and a little sugar to the sour cream. This is our family favorite.

Been making this recipe for years. I only make for the holidays. If I don't, dinner just isn't the same. Yummy!

Been a favorite in our home for years! And so easy to make. :)

Pretty good - the sour cream gave it a bit of a sweet and salty kind of feel. I think next time I'll just use cool whip. But thanks for sharing!

A great classic recipe that I have made for quite a few years! I love it, hubby isn't too fond, but these ingredients together make a wonderful combo, yummy!
