This holiday fruit salad is sweet, but not too sweet, and it’s not watery like most fruit salads end up being. The coconut on top adds a beautiful festive garnish along with a great taste.



  • 11 ounce can Mandarin oranges, drained and juices reserved
  • 20 ounce can pineapple chunks, drained and juices reserved
  • 2 medium apples, chopped
  • 2 bananas, sliced thick
  • 1 pint of strawberries, hulled and sliced in half
  • 21 ounce can peach pie filling (remove a few spoonfuls of the filling ‘glue’ if desired, you can always add it later if you want a softer finish)
  • 1/4 C shredded coconut flakes, toasted if desired


  1. In a small bowl add the apples and banana and pineapple and Mandarin juice.
  2. Allow to sit until the rest of the salad is assembled, drain and add to the salad bowl.
  3. In a large decorative bowl add the pineapple, mandarin oranges, strawberries and peach pie filling. Toss with the apples and bananas.
  4. Top with the coconut.
