Marshmallow Fruit Salad

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.

    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.
