This is a really good Jello Salad! This is a recipe out of our family cookbook that my cousin Vicki put together as a labor of love for her mom (dad's sister) for her 71st birthday in 1997. (Times are approximate, as I haven't timed how long this takes to make).

PERFECT!! This is a great fruit salad for a hot summer day...so cool and refreshing. The combination of pineapple, bananas, sour cream, and coconut goes perfectly with the orange flavored jello. (You just can't beat those "old-time" family favorites). Thanks Teresa for sharing this. :-)

I made this sugar-free and it turned out great. Even the non-jello salad eaters tried it and liked it. I am emailing this to my Mom because I know that she'll like it too. Thanks for posting.
