Hawaiian Fruit Salad

I'm gonna go ahead a post a disclaimer up front.  There is nothing salad about this.  It has TWO BAGS OF MARSHMALLOWS in it.  TWO BAGS.  When  my family asked what was for dinner and I said, "Hawaiian Fruit Salad..." they replied, "Yum." until they asked what was in it.  Then Little Devil proceeded to ask if I was crazy and wrinkled her nose.  My first response was, "Don't knock it til ya try it..." followed by, "It has TWO BAGS OF MARSHMALLOWS in it.  What can possibly be bad about anything with TWO BAGS OF MARSHMALLOWS???"  I'm gonna go ahead and call it "salad" so my conscious and my waistline can feel less guilty about marshmallows and Cool Whip together in the same bowl.  Do not be discouraged by the ingredients like Little Devil was.  She loved it.  It's surprisingly light, sweet and just a little tart from the sour cream.  Plus the TWO BAGS OF MARSHMALLOWS puff up and get soft.  Seriously.  Eat the whole bowl.  It's just "salad."
Enjoy a hearty serving because it's SALAD.
