Stir sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice in large bowl. Mix in drained fruit. Gently fold in whipped topping. Spoon into 8x8-inch square baking dish.
  • COMBINE coconut and pecans in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until golden brown. Remove from heat; add butter, stir until melted. Sprinkle over fruit mixture. On top of coconut mixture, arrange reserved mandarin oranges in a circular spoke wheel pattern, placing a maraschino cherry in the center. Chill 2 hours or until set.
