How to Make Quick Ambrosia


  1. Combine marshmallows, mandarin oranges, pineapple, coconut and sour cream (and grapes and/or bananas if using them).
  2. If adding bananas: If using pineapple in 100% juice, reserve juice and slice the bananas into it (to avoid browning). If using pineapple canned in syrup discard syrup and make a mixture of 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1/2 cup cold water and slice the bananas into it. Scoop the bananas out of the liquid, discard liquid and add banana slices to the salad.
