Change of Pace Fruit Salad


Recently I've discovered this cool salad:

1 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup mandarin oranges
1 cup unsweeteened coconut
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup lite Cool Whip

Mix and chill.

It's low on Weight Watcher's points with 3 points per cup. I have it as a desert most of the time.

Since I made this salad, I've seen it in a few cookbooks and online here and there. It has many different names. I must have never paid attention before. I even saw this same recipe except substituting lite sour cream for the lite Cool Whip. I tried it and it tasted like a whole other salad.

This is now a regular recipe for me.
