Orange Fluff

With two little ones at home, I seem to be getting busier and busier.  I don't have a lot of time to sit at the computer and get my recipes posted, but I'm trying.  I made this recipe for a potluck back in April and knew I had to share this with all of you!  My mom has been making this salad for years and she shared the recipe with me a few years ago.  It's so refreshing and so very easy to put together!  It's a perfect dish for spring and summer, but I've even made it for Thanksgiving a time or two because of the beautiful orange color.  This is a crowd pleaser!  There are a ton of recipes on the internet for "Orange Fluff", but this is my favorite version!

So yummy!!

1 15 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
