Hawaiian Camping Salad

This salad recipe goes way back to our camping days. We acquired a small travel trailer from my parents around the time my son was 2. That was 31 years ago! We called it the "Flintstones trailer". The kitchen area was non-existent except for a sink and mini oven so I learned real quick how to improvise at mealtime. Usually it was burgers, chicken or sandwiches. To go along with these main courses I'd always bring the ingredients and literally throw it together in minutes!

We graduated to a cab over camper years later and the recipe followed us. We now do most of our camping at the Hilton, so, sorry to say I don't make it as often. It could easily pass as a dessert, it's that tasty.

1 20 oz. can of chunk pineapple
1 11 oz. can of mandarin oranges
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded coconut

Drain the juices from the canned fruit. Place all ingredients into bowl, mix and there you have it! Don't let the sour cream scare you if you don't care for it. It actually cuts the sweetness! Your kids will love this one. Serves 4-6
