Ambrosia Salad PDF Print E-mail


1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained (keep liquid)
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple*, drained (keep liquid)
3 bananas, sliced
2 cups flaked coconut
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 cup maraschino cherries*
1 small box of orange jello mix (I used 1/2 box)

In a large bowl, combine mandarin oranges, pineapple, bananas (I used the juices from the pineapple and oranges to coat the bananas before putting them in with the rest of the mixture, so the bananas wouldn't turn brown), coconut, and marshmallows. Mix orange jello with the rest of the pineapple and orange juices and mix into the whipped topping. Fold in whipped topping with the above mixture. Garnish with maraschino cherries. Chill for 1 hour or overnight.

Optional: You can add 1 cup pecan pieces (the recipe calls for the nuts but I didn't add them)

*Note: 1 cup of cherries is equal to a 10-ounce bottle maraschino cherries (drained)
            I used pineapple tidbits instead of the crushed pineapple
