Russian Salad

OK, so there's no vegies in this recipe, but it is served as a side dish. 

This is a favourite at Christmas and is sometimes called Ambrosia or 5 cup salad.  You see it for sale in the deli section of the supermarkets now, but it is so simple to make.  You could even serve it as a dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium tin of pineapple pieces, drained
  • 1 tin mandarine segments, drained
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup of chopped marshmallows (white is best)
  • 1 cup of sour cream

Method:

  1. Combine all the ingredients
  2. refrigerate for a couple of hours to allow the flavours to combine
  3. serve with other salads.
