WOW! This was almost an exact replica of a salad that I ate by the bowl full when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I used vegan sour cream due to dairy allergies and I also added in some chopped walnuts and marschino cherries. This will be a summer staple in our house. Thank you so much for sharing!

Cooked dressings add that "extra" creaminess to a recipe! I added more marshmallows (double) and used fat free sour cream. This was extra creamy but I didn't notice any extra "pineapple" flavor with the dressing. I will add mar. cherries next time. Thanks Mickeymousemom, for posting- Roxygirl

This is a very easy to put together and very tasty salad. My son, the resident 'shmallow lover in our house loved, loved, loved this. I doubled the batch and made the recipe as it stands. Another great recipe to add to my Canada Day menu. Thanks for posting this recipe.

This is really yummy, the pineapple dressing adds body and extra taste. I have always liked 5-Cup Salad but now I really LOVE it!! I didn't have tidbits so I used crushed pineapple and it worked out just fine. Try it you''ll like it!!

I found this recipe when you were Zaar's Chef of the Day and knew I had to try it. It is wonderful! I added 1 cup of fresh strawberries and some chopped pecans. I also used ff sour cream. Outstanding fruit salad! Thanks!

This is a very light and tasty fruit salad. The pineapple dressing is almost like a custard that pulls all the flavors together. Even though the recipe only called for 1 cup of pineapple tidbits, I added the entire can. The next time I make this salad I think I will also add some chopped pecans to add a little crunch. Thanks for sharing your mom's recipe.

This was really good. I loved the taste of the sauce mix. It really did taste like the taffy apple salad sauce.
