Merlie's Apple Salad
Nana shared this recipe with me about a year ago and we make it quite often, especially in the summer. The first time I tried this salad it sort of threw me for a loop because it looks like the usual fruit salad with whipped topping. The dressing is actually sour cream. Also, I'm not hugely crazy about a lot coconut but the salad doesn't taste right w/o it so don't attempt making it unless you have sweetened coconut on hand. And lately, when I throw this salad together I've been winging it on the quantities, so looking at the actual recipe I probably 1/2 everything for my little family.
INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS
Cut and core apples in 1/2 inch pieces: 6 cups of apples
2-3 cans mandarin oranges, drained
2 cups mini marshmallows, 2 cups coconut, and 3/4 chopped pecans
2 cups sour cream
