Our family always had this for Easter. It is a lovely fruity spring salad we always looked forward too, and it is colorful, too.

Made this tonight for a BBQ get together we were having in our neighborhood. I needed something that was quick and used stuff that I had on hand, and this fit the bill. I used pineapple rings, but just sliced them, and then used white marshmellows and 16 oz (I dont even think that is a whole pint, is it) of sour cream seemed like waaay too much, so I did it until it covered everything. It tastes good, but I think next time I will add some cool whip, just to make it a little sweeter. Thanks so much!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I chill all ingredients before mixing.
  2. Combine the fruit in a pretty glass bowl, then add the coconut and the sour cream.
  3. Finally add the marshmallows.
  4. I have also added walnuts, kiwi fruit, apples, raisins and sometimes mix the sour cream with cool whip. I kind of play around with it once in a while just for variety.
