Hi friends! Every once in awhile, a recipe that I’ve made often comes to mind, and then I realize I’ve never shared it with you. Ambrosia fruit salad is something that we had every Easter growing up. I don’t know why, but it was as standard as the deviled eggs and the ham. So I guess that’s why I always start to crave it this time of year. Ambrosia is kinda tropical and very refreshing–a welcome change to all of the heavy comfort food we usually eat throughout the winter. And it’s super-easy to throw together! So I’m sharing it with you because, who knows? It may be something you had as a kid, too, but never made yourself. It’s easy to forget about all these oldies-but-goodies.
Ambrosia Fruit Salad
1 c. sour cream
1 c. sweetened coconut
1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows
1 can pineapple chunks, drained
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
Drain the cans of fruit really well first. (I pour them into a colander and let them sit there awhile)
When the fruit is sufficiently drained, just mix all of the ingredients together and refrigerate before serving. That’s it!
