Combine ingredients. If possible, refrigerate overnight. Easy to multiply. I substitute my thick, plain yogurt for the sour cream, and sometimes a tin of sliced peaches (halved & drained) for mandarin oranges, which we can't often get here. It's called many things in cookbooks--ambrosia, for example--and sometimes people add chopped nuts or dates. I've seen it in different forms. It makes a good dessert, as well as a salad with dinner (especially for a sweet-toothed family like mine!).
