Ambrosia Salad

Yum
Here is  sweet and delicious salad that can be eaten with a meal or as a dessert.  Ambrosia Salad is a traditional Southern United States dish that was very popular in the 1970s. The name is most likely derived from Greek mythology where it was known as the "food of the Greek gods". There are many variations of this dish, but it is basically a fruit salad with coconut and cream.  It's a light and delicious salad perfect for any potluck, barbeque or buffet. 



 Ingredients:
1 (11oz) can drained crushed pineapple
1 (15oz) can drained mandarin oranges
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup chopped maraschino cherries (optional)

Directions: 
Mix all ingredients together and chill in fridge for 1-2 hours.  Serve as a side or dessert.

  8. This is so funny! You were making Watergate Salad and I was thinking about making Ambrosia Salad. Our minds must be moving along the same track right now. Are you going to use this for your 70's party? I was raised in the South and I can tell you that Ambrosia Salad was a classic 'must have' every Christmas. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe here.

  9. This is such a classic, and I love the your recipe doesn't have mayo (which I hate) in it. Sour cream is a great substitution.

  27. As much as home inspections are important Commercial Property Inspection Maryland also holds vast importance as offices are considered to be the second place where people spend most of the time in a day. It is very important to get the place inspected thoroughly as EPA reported around 21000 deaths annually due to radon exposure which causes lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon Inspection Cost Maryland is nothing as compared to the price you will have to pay when prolonged radon exposure will result in causing major health issues. Radon is a colorless odorless gas present in the air all around us in trace amounts but it becomes a hazard when it gets entrapped inside the house and the residents of the house are exposed to it. The safe levels of radon as suggested by EPA is 4pCi/l and the amount more than it is alarming and you need to install a radon mitigation system at your commercial property as soon as possible.
