Heavenly Hash

Every Thanksgiving, my mother makes a side dish called “heavenly hash.” I googled it today to see if anyone else ate this growing up, and there does seem to be iterations of it out there. Heavenly hash is a very ambrosia-like fruit salad. All you do is combine halved grapes, chopped pineapple, sliced bananas, mini marshmallows, blueberries, and whipped cream. I hated whipped cream in it as a little girl, so mine was mixed in a separate bowl. My brother didn’t have whipped cream in his either, because of his dairy allergy. For us, it was really just a side of fruit with marshmallows, but it felt special all the same. W and I are including it in our Thanksgiving this year for the first time, and that makes me happy.

I’ll have a side of fruit with my marshmallows, please!
