Ambrosia Salad

Riana Oppegard


Here is a simply ambrosia salad. No marshmallows or cool whip here! I think this is closer to what the Greek gods and goddesses enjoyed!

8 or so


15 Min


2 Hr


2 can(s)
of chunk or tidbits of pineapples, drained (20 oz each)
2 can(s)
of mandarin orange segments, drained (11 oz each)
1 c
vanilla yogurt
1 c
flaked or shredded coconut (i used a 2/3 cup and 1/4 cup, and it was perfect!)
walnuts, if desired (i think around 1 cup would be ideal)

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix ingredients in a large bowl. I did it in this order, pineapples, oranges, coconut and yogurt. But it shouldn't matter.
Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours. (I left mine in overnight and it was wonderful.)
Serve chilled. You can add nuts to the whole thing if your guests all like them, if not leave them to the side so people can add it to their own dish.
