An Old Dessert That's Still a Winner
One-Cup Fruit Salad
Variations of one-cup fruit salad have been around since Grandmother’s time. The name comes from the original idea of using a cup of this, a cup of that.
Here’s how to make it with new product sizes. It’s an ideal emergency dessert because everything except the sour cream can be kept in the pantry. Sour cream now comes in regular, light or fat-free and they all work here. Save fruit juices to make fruit punch.
10-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
Small can pineapple tidbits, drained
8-ounce jar chunky applesauce (1 cup) OR
2 snack-size portions of chunky applesauce
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup broken cashews or other nuts
8-ounce carton sour cream (1 cup)
Mix well and chill. Makes 10 to 12 desserts. Serving tip: Spoon it into ice cream cones and eat the “dishes”.
