Christine Mills relies on convenient cans of pineapple chunks, fruit cocktail and mandarin oranges to speed up this marshmallow fluff. The Buffalo, New York subscriber dresses up the salad a bit by stirring in the rich sour cream and chopped pecans for a pleasant crunch.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2012

I made this for a party and almost didn't serve it to my guests. The mix of sour cream and pineapple made the entire dish taste 'sour'. I ended up picking out the pineapple pieces and adding granulated sugar to help sweeten the salad. It helped but still wasn't that tasty. I won't make again.
