Fruit Salad - Ambrosia Style
10 mins (prep 10)
8 ingredients
8-10 servings
My Mother made this salad for every Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners. I remember looking forward to this the most, as a kid, as I loved the marshmallows and the fruit. My Mom made a big bowl of this and added shredded coconut to half of it and left the other without for those of us non-coconut lovers. This is so quick and easy yet so tasty and refreshing, especially with a big heavy holiday meal. I also found out that this is a common Hawaiian Luau side dish. Time does not include chilling time.
