Easy Fruit Salad

Make It Monday – Easy Fruit Salad
Ingredients
1/2 bag of mini marshmallows
1 large can pineapple chunks
1 large or 2 small cans of mandarin orange slices
1 small jar of cherries (without stems)
8 oz sour cream (approx.) I’ve never measured, but I usually use about 1/2 of a 16oz container. Add more if needed.
Directions
Drain all fruit well. Mix marshmallows, fruit and sour cream. Add more sour cream if it doesn’t seem moist enough. I usually make this no more than a few hours before eating, as the marshmallows will get softer the longer they sit in the salad. This recipe is easily doubled.
