Start hulling and slicing strawberries.  Place in a large colander and rinse clean. Cut pineapple into bite-sized pieces and place in colander.  Place all fruit in colander and allow all fruit to drain. After fruit is well-drained, pour into a large bowl, add sour cream and half of the marshmallows and coconut, and mix together. Allow fruit salad to settle overnight in fridge.  Remove from fridge and add more marshmallows and coconut to absorb the juice. Serve and enjoy!

This can also be made with canned fruit cocktail, mandarin oranges, and canned pineapple.  Just remember to drain all fruit and add sour cream, marshmallows, and coconut.
