A typical 5 5-cup fruit salad is very similar, but this fruit salad utilizes fresh strawberries and bananas. Totally delicious and comforting!

I had this delicious marshmallow salad a lot growing up at holiday dinners, family gatherings, and potlucks. It’s definitely a major step up from a basic fruit co*cktail!

    if you save the pineapple juice you can soak bananas in the juice so they don’t turn brown works with apples also.
