Ambrosia Waldorf Salad

Mandy Holmes


This recipe brought back memories of going to grandma's for the holiday's as she always made the best fruit salad! It is now my oldest son's favorite holiday dessert and still mine. I hope you enjoy as much as we do

We like to replace the cranberries with sliced bananas which I soak in the pineapple juice
