For a taste of summer sunshine, I whip up this quick, refreshing salad. It’s pretty enough to double as a dessert. Peach yogurt and coconut really dress up the canned fruit cocktail. —Marian Bauerle, Marana, Arizona


  • 1 can (8 ounces) fruit cocktail, drained
  • 1 medium firm banana, halved and sliced
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup peach yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 maraschino cherries, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine the fruit cocktail, banana and marshmallows. Combine yogurt and mayonnaise until blended; add to fruit mixture and stir to coat. Spoon into individual dishes; top with coconut and a cherry if desired.
Test Kitchen Tip: Leftover mini marshmallows can be added to homemade tail mix or a bowl of cereal, or used as a topping for a baked sweet potato along with butter and cinnamon.
