This is a very refreshing and light dessert and just a perfect choice after a heavy meal. I loved the sweet and tart flavors mixed together. The smell of the cranberries cooking was wonderful. Plus, the coconut on top was a lovely addition. I look forward to making a few more Ambrosia salads from this cookbook and will share when I do. Hope you enjoy!
