Can't beat this for simplicity! I decided to add this dish to my Christmas dinner at the last minute and didn't have all the exact ingredients on hand, so I made the following alterations: no fruit cocktail, no maraschino cherries, no nutmeg. I skipped the cinnamon(thought it might clash with my "extras"). I used a 20 oz can of pineapple (considerably more than the recipe called for), TWO 11 oz tins of mandarin oranges, and then tossed in three pints of fresh blackberries, 4 small sliced bananas from my backyard and two lilikoi (passionfruit) also from my yard. I cut the coconut way back to maybe 1/2-3/4 cup. The blackberries turned the salad a bit purple, which looked very festive actually, and the combination was divine! We're going to try this without the coconut and the mini marshmallows next time for a fruit salad that isn't quite as sweet, though we won't call it "ambrosia". The recipe was super easy and everyone loved it.
