- shredded coconut
- marachino cherries
- pineapple juice (large can)

- peel and dice the apples into small chunks.
- cut the bananas into thin slices.
- chop the pecans.
- slice cherries into halves and keep juice to the side.
- In the serving bowl, layer ingredients in the following order: oranges, sprinkle sugar, bananas, crushed pineapple, apple, coconut, pecans, cherries.
- Repeat layers until the bowl is full.
- From the side of the bowl, pour in the pineapple juice and pour the left over cherry juice (do not pour over the center).
- Keep chilled when not being served.
- Tip: ensure the apples and bananas are on a citrus layer, so they keep from turning brown and mushy.
