I can thank my younger brother for this recipe. He found a recipe card for a fruit salad that looked really good, but lost it. So we improvised.

*Dollar General & Family Dollar sells the best Tropical Fruit.

My mother-in-law likes to add sliced fresh bananas when I make this at her house!

How to Make Jeff's Fruit Salad


  1. drain cans and cherries (the kids like to drink the juices, my nephew calls it "Juice of the Fruit"), add all fruit, marshmallows & sour cream and you are done! This can be served immediately, but if you refrigerate it for a bit, the marshmallows absorb any extra juice & I think that it has a better consistency.
