This was given to me by my Husbands Grandmother, she wouldn't give it to anyone else because she said they weren't interested in cooking and I was, now everyone begs me for Grandma Whites Ambrosia Recipe!

How to Make Ambrosia Salad


  • 1Drain the pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, and cherries (I usually keep the juice to put into Jello the next day). Mix them together.
  • 2Add the coconut and marshmellows next.
  • 3Then mix in the sour cream and refrigerate. I try to make this one of the last dishes I make before Thanksgiving because if it sits too long it does tend to get watery. This is excellent recipe to give a "student" in the kitchen to do so they are out from under your feet and it gives them a good sense of accomplishment.
