I dipped into my grandmother's trusty For the Love of Cooking (circa 1975) cookbook again and was amused by the idea of Psychedelic Salad.
In general, I'm not big on the whole fruity potlucky salad deal.
I think it's kind of a Midwestern thing.
I'm not trying to stereotype here. It's just that last time we went to Thanksgiving dinner in Nebraska there were five...yes FIVE types of fruit marshmallowy gelatin dishes. I don't know about you, but I'd never seen that many in one place before.
Anyhow, how can you resist Psychedelic Salad?
1 cup crushed pineapple
1 cup red raspberries
1 cup mandarin orange sections
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup commercial sour cream
Mix together and refridgerate for 24 hours before serving.
Pierce said this had too much coconut. I kind of agreed. He did enjoy picking out the marshmallows though. And he was excited when we told him that Bob Marley was totally into psychedelic salad for dinner.
