Five Cup Salad

Coconut, pineapple, and mandarin oranges.

Here’s a version from the July 17, 1955 edition of the Racine Journal Times:

Five Cup Salad

1 cup coconut
1 cup mandarin oranges
1 cup crushed pineapple
1 cup marshmallows
1 cup commercial sour cream

Cut marshmallows into small pieces. Drain oranges and pineapple, add coconut, marshmallows and cream. Chill and serve on lettuce. Garnish each serving with maraschino cherries.

From the box of F.J. from Sun City, Arizona. Some cards suggest a family history in Missouri and Kansas.
