Marshmallow Salad



For most people, Thanksgiving is about the turkey, the dressing, the cranberry sauce, etc. For me? Marshmallow Salad. This is my grandmother’s recipe that I can remember eating from the time I can begin remembering. A family tradition for sure. It’s like our other family tradition of Skyline Chili – you either love it or you hate it. Enjoy!

Marshmallow Salad
  • 1 bag miniature marshmallows
  • 1 jar maraschino cherry halves
  • 1 - 15 oz can of pineapple chunks
  • 2 - 11 oz cans of mandarin oranges
  • 1 - 16 oz container of sour cream (I use Breakstone’s reduced fat)
  1. Drain all of the fruit.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl until the fruit and marshmallows are evenly coated with sour cream.
  3. Refrigerate a few hours before serving.
  4. You can also add a can of fruit cocktail or coconut.
