"I love this fruit salad. The only thing that I do differently is use a cup of Dannon's light and fit vanilla yogurt instead of the sour cream. That yogurt is soooo delicious in this recipe. I sometimes add green grapes cut in half and always double the recipe.

Try it with the Dannon's light and fit vanilla. Outstanding !"

"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."
