Grandma's Five Cup Salad

When I was walking the aisles of Target this past weekend I came across these adorable Kraft Jeff Puffed Bunny Mallows. I picked up a couple of bags and thought about what I could make for my families annual Easter brunch.

After a couple of days, all I could come up with was making white hot chocolate topped with bunny marshmallows and then thinking…who would want to drink that when its 80 degrees and humid outside??? I was at a loss.

Later that day, I started thinking about some of my families traditional dishes and then it came to me. My Grandma’s five cup salad would be the perfect thing to make using these bunny mallows. This retro-refreshing fruit salad has been on our table for Easter brunch for as long as I can remember. Due to its popularity, it has even become a dish that we now serve during all of our holiday meals!

Grandma’s Five Cup Salad

{yield: 8 servings}

1 cup sour cream
1 cup drained pineapple chunks
1 cup drained mandarin orange slices 
1 cup shredded coconut 
1 cup Kraft Jet Puffed Bunny Mallows

In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, drained pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges and shredded coconut. 

Then gently fold in the bunny mallows.

Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

Serve in a large dish or portion the five cup salad into small  individual mason jars for your family to enjoy. I topped each off with a little bunny mallow for a festive touch.

It’s as simple as that folks and tastes amazing, especially when the flavors from the pineapple and oranges have melded together with the coconut after a couple of hours in the refrigerator.
