Today I am going to share with you my granny’s 5 Cup Salad recipe. I grew up picking the marshmallows out of this salad when my granny wasn’t looking, and then the ratios were all off when dinner started. Haha! Now, as an adult, I no longer pick out the marshmallows, but they are still my favorite part of this 5 cup salad.
5 Cup Salad may be considered one of the stereotypically Mormony recipes — I feel like every grandma at my church has their own version of this salad. It always shows up in several variations at each congregation potluck. 🙂 This is our family’s version, and it always brings back fond memories of my childhood. It is tasty and refreshing, but, best of all, it is CRAZY simple to make. It would be a perfect recipe for a kid to be in charge of making all on their own!
I always double or triple this recipe when I am bringing it to a potluck or serving it to a large group.
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
- 1 cup mandarine oranges, drained
- Drain the fruit and dump into a bowl.
- Dump the remaining three ingredients into a bowl.
- Stir up and enjoy!
