May recipe

Here is a recipe for a great summer salad. This is one of those salads that you can add or delete items from depending on your taste. Example, it calls for cherries but I don't like cherries so I don't put them in there. It doesn't call for grapes but I love grapes so I put them in there. So if there is something you don't like just omit it and add what you do. I love this salad.

Fruit Salad

1 cup marachino cherries
1 cup mandarine oranges, drained
1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (your prefence what kind)
1 cup colored marshmallows
1 cup sour cream (sometimes I subst. cool whip)

Just combine everything in a bow, mix together real well and chill overnight. It stays fresh for about 3 days.
If you don't want that much salad, just cut ingredients in half. When I serve it, I cut up a banana to put with it. You can't include the banana in the recipe. Enjoy!
