I like this dessert because, compared to most desserts, it's much better for you. It's mostly fruit and Cool Whip, so I didn't feel guilty about indulging in a bowl or two. Also, this dish is so easy a monkey could do it. It's literally just dumping ingredients into a bowl and stirring them together. It doesn't get much better than that!
8 oz tub lite Cool Whip
1/2 cup light sour cream
11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
20 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
10 oz can maraschino cherries, drained and with stems removed
1 cup coconut flakes
2 cups miniature marshmallows
3/4 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts, but pecans would be great too)
1. In a large serving bowl, fold sour cream into Cool Whip.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
