Ambrosia

 One of my favorite salads is ambrosia.
I think it's the mixture of fruit and creamy that sparks my like.
You can also add marshmallows to this too, but I chose to leave them out.
This is the perfect dish to take to get-togethers and potlucks.
Don't forget that when you use the maraschino cherries....
save the juice.
I like to use the juice in frosting's. 
And with Valentine's Day coming up....
Chocolate cupcakes with cherry frosting....
OOOO LA LA!!!
Need I say more?
Ambrosia

1 (12 oz.) maraschino cherries
1 (15 oz.) mandarin oranges
1 (20 oz.) crushed pineapple or tidbits
Drain all three ingredients
1 c. sour cream
1 c. cool whip
1 c. sweet flaked coconut

Place drained fruits in a large bowl. Fold in sour cream, cool whip, and coconut. Chill in refrigerator for a couple hours before serving.

  2. I love this dessert! When I was a working woman and we had potluck lunches, this was the first thing I went for! Funny thing, I have never made it at home!

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I really enjoy creamy and fruity salads too. Ambrosia is wonderful and your recipe sounds great with the sour cream added! Don't think I've tried that!
