Sarah's Ambrosia Fruit Salad Recipe
Ambrosia salad loaded with marshmallows, coconut, pineapple, and mandarin oranges is a refreshing salad to serve at summer picnics.
This has always been a favorite salad of mine. I made as written, but only added coconut to three-fourths of the salad and left the other fourth without for my coconut disliking guys. This recipe does make a very large bowl and it was good without getting watery for about 3 days. Just make sure you drain your fruit really well. I saved the juice from the fruit and used it to make gelatin. A delicious salad that will grace my table again.
This has become my signature "pot luck" contribution. I use equal parts cool whip and sour cream. One preparation change I made is after draining, I leave the fruit in the colander placed in a larger bowl. I let this drain overnight in the fridge. This step removes at least another cup and a half of liquid. The salad then is less runny.
Ambrosia salad gets an added boost of color and flavor with nine types of fruit mixed with vanilla-infused sour cream and a sprinkling of pecans.
Ambrosia salad just like grandma made is made simple for holiday meals thanks to instant pudding and canned fruit.
