We do a lot of fruit salads in our house. I think they go great with those “one pot” meals that have meat and veggies all in one – just a quick side dish that compliments nicely. This is a quick one that is super tasty. Make sure you put the cinnamon on before serving – really makes this dish! Recipe from the “All Recipes” cookbook.
-1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
-2 1/2 cups shredded coconut
-1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
-1 (8 oz) can fruit cocktail, drained
-1 (8 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained
-1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
-3 cups miniature marshmallows
-1 (10 oz) jar maraschino cherries, drained (optional)
-1 tsp ground nutmeg
-1 tsp ground cinnamon
1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. You can leave some of the juice from the cherries if you wish – gives the salad a nice pink color. Mix together well and refrigerate 30 to 45 minutes.
2. Sprinkle with cinnamon on top of each individual serving.
