Pineapple, bananas and marshmallows are folded into orange Jell-O in this refreshing salad. Frosted with a creamy topping, pecans and coconut, this yummy dish is a real crowd-pleaser. I have been making it for years. -Anna Jean Key, Muskogee, Oklahoma

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2014

When I was looking for recipes for my families Christmas meal, this looked like a yummy and different twist to using all the ingredients combined. I ended up using a bigger pan than suggested and putting one cup of ice cubes into the pan when it was setting up in the fridge to make the gelatan set faster. When I first tasted this, I was not very happy. However, the second, third, and fourth days, it was totally scrumptious! The flavors of the pineapple, marshmallows, bananas, orange gelatin, and coconuts are absolutely astronomical and better after the first day. So just keep in mind, it is like chicken or spaghetti and if it sits for an extra day, it is so delicious you go back for seconds or even thirds!
