Five Cup Salad

With only days left until Thanksgiving, I’m finally starting to get a bit of my appetite back. I haven’t really had the desire to cook at all for about 2 weeks now, and haven’t been eating much of anything except 2 banh mi’s and a double Vietnamese coffee a day for that entire time. On the bright side, I’m down 10 pounds. I am looking forward to my field trip to Jungle Jim’s tomorrow to find a turducken. I tried to get myself back into the groove by actually making something today – it’s not much, but at least it’s not a banh mi, LOL. This is one of my all time favorite fruit salads – easy to make year round, sweet, and can either be a breakfast or a dessert. I’m not sure where the recipe orginiated from, but it’s been around for years.


Five Cup Salad

1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup sour cream
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup mini marshallows

Mix all ingredients together, and put into the fridge to chill overnight. The longer you leave it, the more the marshmallows will break down.
