This special salad is my family’s all-time favorite. You can make it a day in advance, but add the bananas just before serving.

  • 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) pina colada yogurt
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form. Fold in yogurt until blended. Pour over fruit mixture; stir to coat. Sprinkle with almonds. Refrigerate until serving.

    I will keep this in my special recipes for large groups because it makes too much for our small family. Well received today at 8 couple brunch, but I still had about two cups to take home. However, there were lots of other choices of food. Everyone was complimentary of those who did try it. Made the recipe exactly as written. Made it the night before because I had to take it to church with me at 8:30 a.m.
