1 can Pineapple slices
1 c. Mandarin oranges
1- 16 oz. Sour cream
3/4 to 1 c. Walnuts, chopped (optional)

Cut apple into small chunks;
Open canned items (fruit cocktail, pineapple chunks, and mandarin oranges), strain juices and mix with fresh fruits;
Add walnuts and coconut sprinkles, as desired and to taste;

Mix all together with sour cream. Store in refrigerator for several hours, overnight is better as it gives the ingredients a chance to mix up the juices. The sour cream will help the juices to mix to a wonderful sweet taste! You can use light fruit and sour cream, if desired.
