This recipe was passed down to me by my mother almost 50 years ago. The correct name is "5 Cup". We still make it every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter in remembrance of my Mom!

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.

I've made this but instead of a can of pineapple chunks I use a can of mixed fruit and instead of white marshmallows I use the coloured ones.
