Hawai’ian Fruit Salad

Among other things, Facebook tends to be a nice resource for recipies. And when I see one I like, one problem is that you can’t “Pin” from FB. When that happens, I’ll head to Pinterest and see if I can find a version of the desired recipe. Didn’t find the exact one, so here I am to make a version that I can save.

Hawai’ian Fruit Salad. The one one with the oranges and tiny marshmallows. The one that is so fluffy and yummy that you could just keep eating the entire bowl. The one that is perfect for a family reunion or a BBQ.

Yeah, I needed that recipe!

Hawai’ian Fruit Salad

  • 3 cans mandarin oranges
  • 2 bags mini marshmallows (white or multi-colored if you want to be crazy!)

  • 1 jar un-stemmed maraschino cherries
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple
  • 2 containers cool whip
  • 1/2 bag coconut (optional)
  1. Open everything, and drain the fruits of can/jar juices.
  2. Cut cherries into 1/4.
  3. Combine everything in a large bowl and mix super well.
  4. Refrigerate for an hour and enjoy!

    • I buy the smaller cans (don’t remember the size.) I’ve seen sour cream in multiple-sized containers (small, med, large). I think the medium one is 2 cups… so you could buy one of the smaller containers (about a cup) if you don’t want any left over. Maraschino cherries only come in one size jar at the stores I go to.

      I’m not about exact amounts… I add and subtract based on what I like, what it looks like, or by what’s available in the pantry/fridge. It usually works out.
