I agree that the crushed pineapple made the salad a bit mushy, but all of the great flavor was still there - the marshmallow and sour cream blended together tasted like fluff, and with the pineapple and coconut, it tasted like an ice cream sundae topping minus the ice cream underneath. Great juicy mandarin oranges. A little too sweet and decadent - a once-a-year treat, for sure.

What's with the crushed pineapple?? We always made it with tidbits or chunks. I tried the crushed and it made the salad too mushy so I'm going back to the tidbits. As mentioned, this is the 5-cup but since the proportions have changed in this recipe it is no longer 5-cup. I'm sticking with the original only using light sour cream.
