Whether you make it 'tropical' or 'traditional', this is an easy/quick fruity fruit salad.*
You could make this by using your own favorite 'go together' fruits!
The pecan halves give this a bit (bite?) of occasional 'crunch'!
1 of 15 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained
1 of 20 oz. can Pineapple tidbits or chunks, drained
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup shredded or flake coconut (optional)
1 cup green OR red seedless grapes, halved.
1 cup pecan halves
Beat together the next two ingredients, and put over fruit mixture:
1 cup sour cream
1 of 8 oz. cream cheese
*VARIATION for the creamy 'sauce':
Some choose to use a mixture of prepared vanilla instant pudding (using 1/2 cup less milk than called for) and smoothly beaten cream cheese over the fruit.
