Fruit Salad Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 6)

My dear mom passed down this recipe, it has been in our family many years and is almost identical to this. It is called Ambrosia Salad. It is my family's favorite. It calls for 1/4 c. shredded coconut(leave out if don't like), but it gives a nice flavor and sweetness to this, 1 c. sour cream or enough to moisten, 1 c. grapes halved, 1 c. mandarin oranges drained( I use more), 1 c. mini marshmellows and 1 c. crushed pineapple drained. Double for large crowds. You can basically add the fruits you like and mix with sour cream until your liking. I think the cherries is a great addition!We especially like this in the summer months but get cravings for it year round! My daughter begs me to make this all the time! This recipe is so close to this and that is why I gave it 5*. I think any way you make will be great! Thanks Tina for sharing!

Don't wait for holidays to make this salad! If you're sick of whipped cream, cool whip and mayonnaise adorning your salads, then this one is for you! The sour cream dressing is wonderful, not too sweet or heavy. Sometimes I add just a touch of orange or lemon extract to the sour cream.I usually halve it, then use very few marshmallows (too sweet). Sometimes I add a banana or two and leave out the marshmallows completely. Thanks Tina.This is delish!

I added 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and I sliced frozen strawberries in half. I really liked this recipe, but it makes enough for 10 to 12 servings.

The sour cream gave it a wonderfully tangy, creamy texture but wayyyyy too many marshmallows. I'll try using 8 oz marshmallows next time.

This didn't go over well at our holiday dessert table. Alittle too strange.

I didn't use all of the marshmallows, that seemed like too many. But it was very quick and very easy!

This is a tangy treat to be thankful for.
