- 1 can crushed pineapple, drained
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 3 bananas, sliced
- 1 bag mini marshmallows
- 1 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄2-1 cup sour cream
- Put all ingredients in LARGE bowl in order listed, stir well to blend.
- Refrigerate until cold and serve.
I have made this salad several times and am always surprised at the number of finicky skeptics that that frown at the combination of ingredients, only to taste it and find themselves asking me to make their very own bowl of this delicious salad!!! I have added a couple of ingredients to give it a bit of a savory twist: I add a little shredded sharp cheddar cheese and instead of using raisins, I add red seedless grapes. Really delicious! Thanks for this incredibly simple yet tasty fruit salad, Dawn.
i just prepared this and it is SOOOO good...thank you for the recipe....only thing I did different (apart from not using bananas) was to squirt the apples with lemon juice to keep them from oxidation...and although I am not much of a celery person, this begged for chopped celery....everything else I went by recipe- THANK YOU again.... will make it this Thanksgiving....( will also make it for next time we have a meal at church)....
I used sugar crisp apples, no raisins (didn't have any in house :) and plain yogurt instead of sour cream. it is to die for and I know will be a hit come the holidays!
