"My family has been making this for as long as I can remember. One tip is to mix the sour cream, coconut, and marshmallows together first, before mixing in the pineapple and mandarin oranges. This helps keep the mandarin oranges from being crushed by too much mixing."

"I added seedless grapes to the recipe, and increased the sour cream. You can add maraschino cherries to it as well if you want to add a bit of color"
