Ambrosia Fruid Salad

This yummy dish comes from a 2008 Taste of Home Magazine my mother-in-law gave me.  We gobble it up quickly.  The recipe calls for marshmallows, which sometimes I leave out because Baby Girl has an addiction to them.  It's not pretty when we run out . . . or her big brothers are still eating theirs when she's consumed hers already.

2 c cubed fresh pineapple (or 1 can if you don't have fresh)
2 large oranges, peeled and sectioned (but last night I used a can of Mandarin oranges)
1 1/2 c grapes
1 large banana, sliced
1 c mini marshmallows
1/2 c flaked coconut
1/4 c chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
1 6 oz carton vanilla yogurt

Combine all the ingredients but the yogurt in a large mixing bowl; gently fold in yogurt.  Chill until serving.  Sometimes I wait until just before serving to add the bananas and marshmallows.
