This morning, I grabbed all of the needed ingredients for this ambrosia salad, plus one banana, and 1 cup of walnuts per the suggestion of one allrecipes reviewer. I had no idea this recipe was going to yield such a huge amount, but, no matter! I am so happy because there is so much more of this ambrosia for me to eat!!! As they used to say in my 20's,"This is The Bomb!"!!! I have never made ambrosia before, even though I would always see it at potlucks. It always seems to be a staple at parties held by one specific ethnicity of my ethnic background. And, I would always turn my nose up at it, thinking it would be too sweet. When first reading the recipe, I balked at the use of the marshmallows, but trudged on. This recipe is sweet, but not like it will give you a sugar high. Once I had gotten everything combined, Wow!!! This was absolutely so delicious! The crunchiness of walnuts (or I'm sure if you use any other nut, like cashews) balances the other textures of the softer ingredients. The marshmallows are so heavenly with the walnuts! Everything goes so well together! Unfortunately, my husband does not share my enthusiasm for this recipe. I would absolutely love to share what I'd made, but cannot think of a soul to share this with. Didi, thank you so much for your recipe! Whether my husband likes it or not, this will be a keeper in our recipe file!!!
