Hope's Salad

Melissa Snow


My Mother has had this recipe forever. It was given to her by her Aunt Hope. This is the first time I have ever tried it. I will definitely be making it again. I let the salad thaw for about 45 minutes, but I will probably let it sit out for a hour and a half next time.

Because this is an old recipe, Aunt Hope didn't write down the quantity of each ingredient; except for the marshmallows. :)

I think the Mandarin Oranges came in a 10 or 11 oz can. The pineapple tidbits came in a 15-16 oz can. I believer the sour cream was a 16 oz container.
