5 Cup Salad

For those of you who LOVE marshmallows you are in for a REAL treat today! This recipe is one that has been around longer than I've been alive! My Grandma Helen (yes, I was named after her!) used to fix this exact recipe up for the holidays...especially Thanksgiving & Christmas...and serve it along with the other yummy foods that go along with the holidays such as turkey/ham, potatoes, dinner rolls, green bean casserole, etc. It has a family favorite and I absolutely plan to make it a full time member of my holidays once Autry & I are married and on our own!

1 cup sour cream
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup canned crushed pineapple, drained (NOT fresh pineapple!)
Only one! Mix together everything in a bowl and chill in the fridge for an hour or more if you can.
~Doubling this recipe (or even more!) is simple...just add 1 cup more of each ingredient. 5 cups of sald = 5 different ingredients! Very simple for those with memory challenges and very tasty too!
~It's best when it's had a bit to soften up the marshmallows, but still tastes like you just made it. AKA best the same day it's made, but still delicious if there are any leftovers the next few days after you make it!
