Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner. This is another side salad that is simple and easy, but also refreshing and light. This fluffy fruit salad has always been a tradition for us over the years. After some tweaking, we now add coconut (which my husband loves), and throw in a few maraschino cherries to give it extra flavor and color. Enjoy! Kids love it, and adults do, too. We enjoy this often for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
- 20 oz. fresh or canned fruit (pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, several maraschino
- cherries; drained)
- 3½ c. whipped topping or Cool Whip; half can be substituted with sour cream or Greek yogurt
- 1 c. shredded coconut
- 1 c. mini marshmallows
- In a large bowl, combine mixed fruit with marshmallows and coconut.
- Add whipped cream and toss to mix. Cover and chill several hours before serving.
