My husband is a Chef and he said it sounds like Ambrosia Salad.  It was with Raisins, apples and heavy cream rather than sour cream.

By the way, when my dear husband is not around to help me with recipes, I go to  You can click on the 'ingredients' tab and type in the ingredients you want or don't want and they will give you a list of recipes.  Good luck!
