Sweet Tooth Satisfaction: Ambrosia Salad

Today I was craving something sweet, which generally means it's time to bake brownies, but my sweet tooth convinced me to try something much more exciting and super easy to make, Ambrosia Salad. JD’s grandma (the hubby’s mom) makes the best Ambrosia salad and today the Garcia Foodies shared the recipe with me; and with their permission I'm sharing it with you.  

Ambrosia Salad
  • 1 can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup sour cream 
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

Combine pineapple chunks, sour cream, coconut flakes and slivered almonds in a large bowl, and then gently fold in the mandarin oranges (they are very delicate). Cover salad and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Here are some yummy things you can also add to the salad, just remember to add more sour cream when adding extra ingredients:
  • 1 small jar maraschino cherries, drained 
  • 1 small can peaches, drained and halved 
  • 1 cup red or green seedless grapes, halved

This salad has been served at every Thanksgiving dinner in my family for over 70 years. It's lite and refreshing and the kids love it. And it's not too sweet.
Love it, Bo
