1 cup sour cream (can use yogurt instead) 1 cup pineapple bits, well drained 1 cup small mandarin pieces, well drained (can use fruit salad instead) 1 cup shredded coconut 1 cup miniature marshmallows 8-10 maraschino cherries, drained and halved (used mostly to add color) jar of Fig and Almond Jam (or whatever is your favourite)
Fig and Almond Jam
Combine all ingredients except jam and mix. Chill. For a party leave jam on side so put a dollop on individual servings, I put it on top before chilling as we all love it. Now how easy is that? Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but it tastes better made in the morning for serving that evening or even made the night before to let the flavors mellow and the marshmallows to "dissolve" a bit in the sour cream. You do NOT need to mix again before serving.
Story behind this recipe
Passed down from my Nan as a refreshing palate cleanser after a meal, but now is a tradition after the BBQ :) make both kinds (yogurt and fruit salad) for differing tastes.
