Nana's Marshmallow Salad

READY IN: 6hrs 10mins
Recipe by rochsann

No coconut, lots of mandarin oranges, and sour cream instead of whipping cream combine to set this marshmallow salad apart. But then I'm biased about all the holiday favorites I grew up with. It's now a favorite of my daughters.

The classic ambrosia/5 cup salad! This "makes" any holiday dinner. Even though I love coconut, I prefer this recipe just the way it is. Thanks Rochsann!<br/>Roxgirl<br/><br/>Update: this time I used Stoneyfield Organic Rich & Creamy plain yogurt & really like it!
