{Creamy Fruit Salad}

Such a classic holiday salad. Did anyone else grow up with this? It’s prefect for pot lucks as well.

1 10oz can pineapple chunks, drained
1 11oz can mandarin oranges, drained
1 medium apple, cored and cut into bite size pieces
1 cup grapes, halved
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

Combine the fruit in a large bowl, tossing well so the apple can get coated in the pineapple and orange juice to prevent browning. Stir in the sour cream and coconut, gently tossing to coat. Add in marshmallows and nuts (if using) stir. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours prior to serving to allow the flavors to meld together. Serve chilled. Sometimes I have noticed a lot of juice at the bottom of the bowl after this sits for awhile. I usually just drain it carefully out.
