Ambrosia Salad




    For the Salad:

        1 cup canned pineapple chunks, drained

        1 cup canned mandarin oranges, drained

        1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

        1 cup mini marshmallows

        1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained and halved

        1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

        1 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt

        1 cup whipped topping (like Cool Whip)


Combine Fruits and Nuts:

In a large bowl, combine the pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, shredded coconut, mini marshmallows, maraschino cherries, and chopped nuts (if using).

Add Sour Cream and Whipped Topping:

Gently fold in the sour cream or Greek yogurt and whipped topping until all the ingredients are well coated.


Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the salad for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld together and the salad to chill thoroughly.


Serve the Ambrosia Salad chilled. It can be garnished with additional maraschino cherries or a sprinkle of coconut on top for presentation.

Enjoy your Ambrosia Salad! This dessert salad is sweet, creamy, and full of delightful textures from the fruit and marshmallows. It’s a nostalgic dish that’s always a hit at gatherings and a lovely treat for any special occasion or holiday meal.
