Family Friendly Fruit Salad
(Makes 12 half cup servings)

Here is today’s version of the Five Cup Salad that many families have enjoyed over the years.  By substituting plain fat-free yogurt for half of the sour cream, fat grams are controlled and this salad now can be part of a healthy eating pattern.

2 (11-ounce) cans mandarin oranges, in light syrup, drained
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained
1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 cup plain fat-free yogurt

1.In large mixing bowl, combine marshmallow, coconut, drained mandarin oranges, and drained pineapple.  Toss gently.

2. Add sour cream and yogurt.  Thoroughly combine.
