Description

An easy and delish traditional holiday salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 can Pineapple Chunks (20 Ounce Can)
  • 1 can Mandarin Oranges (11 Ounce Can)
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Triple Cherry Or Regular Fruit Cocktail
  • 15 whole Maraschino Cherries Plus Extra For Garnish If Desired
  • 2 cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 2 cups Cool Whip Topping

Preparation

Set a large strainer on top of a plate or large flat bowl. Set aside for just a moment.

Drain out the juice from the cans of fruit. Add the pineapple, fruit cocktail and mandarin oranges to the strainer. Cut the cherries in half and add them to the strainer.

Using a spoon, spread the fruit out in the strainer so it’s not lumped together.

Let the fruit sit in the strainer for 2 to 3 hours (or more) if you have time, so that all of the juice is completely drained from the fruit.

Transfer the fruit to a large bowl and add the marshmallows and the Cool Whip. Gently blend in the Cool Whip. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve chilled and top with more cherries.

What could be wrong with fruit, marshmallows, and Cool Whip? My daughter loved this and wants it every Christmas now. I like the thought of adding chopped pecans.
