Mom's Fruit Salad

This salad is great all year round. It is the fruit salad I remember as a child. When my mom was a girl she had this salad with canned or bottled fruit. In those days fresh fruit during the Winter was nonexistent. It's nice to be able to mix and match now.

Mom's Fruit Salad

This version includes:

mandarin oranges
sour cream

Consider adding:
raspberries, pears, peaches, banana, etc.

Basically, you can use any type of fruit you choose. If you do use canned or bottled fruit be sure and drain it first. Marshmallows add a touch of sweetness, and juice from the cut pineapple sweetens up the sour cream. No other sugar is needed.


  1. THAT looks like a yummy dessert!

  2. This is one of my favorite fruit salads. I like to add shredded coconut to it too.

  3. Yup, I was introduced to this yummy salad when I married my hubs. Of course, I tried to make it w/no-fat or low-fat sour cream ... a big no-no I found out very soon. I'll have to try it with some of the other fruits you've suggested.
