Easy Ambrosia Fruit Salad

207

My cute grandma wrote me a little note about how it takes a lot of practice to learn your way around the kitchen but this recipe is a great place to start; she then included the following recipe for this simple ambrosia salad. I still have the recipe card with her teeny-tiny perfect handwriting and it will forever be a treasure to me. And she is exactly right- it doesn't get much simpler than this little recipe.

10
1 (14 oz) can fruit cocktail
1 (20 oz) can pineapple tidbits
2 (6 oz) containers vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 cup miniature marshmallows
Other fruit that you can add:
1 cup green grapes
1 cup red grapes
1 apple, diced
1 banana, sliced
1 can mandarin oranges
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Chill until served. *I usually like to make this about 30 minutes before we eat. I feel like the marshmallows tend to get really mushy if I do it much more...

I love entertaining, even if it is for a smaller group these days. I look forward to dinners with my kids, their spouses, and especially my little grandson. I always try to serve foods that’ll keep them wanting to come back for more, like my Corn Dip.
