“Cool and refreshing fruit salad. The sour cream adds a creamy tang. If you like you can add more coconut and marshmallows. If desired, confectioner's sugar can be used in place of the coconut and cherries can be added for color.”

Great salad, perfect for a summer BBQ. It is very easy, but if you have extra time it is great with bananas and strawberries instead of the fruit cocktail.



Easy recipe for fruit salad. My husband doesn't like coconut and I forgot to buy marshmallows, but I mixed about a tablespoon of brown sugar into the sour cream before adding it to the fruit and it was a nice sidedish.



Holiday tradition in my family...we called 24 hour Christmas salad. Makes a beautiful presentation and is simply delicious!
