My mom and grandmother used to make this salad. I was very glad to see it posted. I made it the other day for a church event. A very beautiful array of colors and textures. A delicious, sweet, creamy taste. Easy and a crowd pleaser. Thanks BarbaraK.

This salad is simply delicious ! I added fresh strawberries, cut the fat free sour cream to 4 oz and added fat free whipped topping. YUMMY. <br/><br/>I will be making this salad again !

Loved this. Comfort food from days gone by. Very easy to make. I make it ahead of time and add the toasted pecans and marshmallows shortly before serving.

Great recipe! I toasted the pecans and added them to each serving as others suggested. I didn't add coconut since I'm the only one that likes it, but I added a couple of bananas. My very picky 11 year old granddaughter helped make it, and she turned her nose up at the sour cream, but even she really enjoyed this recipe. Thanks!

This is the recipe I have been looking for! Grew up with this being served at Grandmother's every special dinner. Never found the recipe that was just right till this one! Who knew - Sour Cream! Amazing! It made our Easter meal extra special ! Thanks for posting! (hint: pecans can get soft if there happen to be any leftovers)

I had this salad for the first time at my Mom's house last week. I talked her into adding marischino cherries and believe me, the cherries do make a difference. This is such a simple salad, but tastes like an exotic dessert. Toasted pecans should be sprinkled on top of each serving because they get soggy-chewy mixed in the salad. They are really nasty if you have left-overs.
