You can make this recipe up to 2 days in advance. This gives the salad enough time for the flavors to merge together however any longer and the fruit and marshmallows may start to become too mushy. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Just give it a mix before serving again.
