Marshmallow Fruit Salad – the BEST fruit salad recipe! Pineapple, mandarin oranges, strawberries, and marshmallows in a creamy dressing. Only 5 ingredients!
I know it looks like I showed up with a bowl of marshmallows today, but I swear there’s fruit in there too.
My oldest started talking about fruit salad as soon as our weather warmed up.
My kids eat fruit all day long but for some reason, he wants it cut up and tossed together. In an effort to become the favorite parent while my husband is deployed, I threw in some marshmallows.
How To Make Marshmallow Fruit Salad
This is the easiest fruit salad you will ever make! It usually mostly canned fruit so there’s not a whole lot of prep work involved.
It starts with a can of pineapple tidbits, a couple cans of mandarin oranges, and some sliced fresh strawberries. That gets tossed together with an entire bag of mini marshmallows and some sour cream.
I know, sour cream is the dressing?! But trust me, it just works.
Once everything is combined, just let it sit in the fridge until you are ready to serve it. All the flavors combine and it gets all juicy and delicious.
You can definitely add other fruit in, too. I think bananas would be extra delicious in this but you do have to worry about the bananas turning brown and gross if it’s not going to be eaten right away.
I also have a Tropical Marshmallow Fruit Salad with pineapple, kiwi, oranges, and shredded coconut!
Can You Make Marshmallow Fruit Salad Ahead?
Yes! You need to make it at least an hour before you serve it but if you need to prep it before that, it will be fine. It will start to get more liquid-y as the fruit sits in the sour cream though.
It is perfectly safe to consume for several days after preparing as long as it is stored properly in the refrigerator.
