This is exactly the ambrosia recipe I was looking for! One caveat, however: if you're making this for a family or party, the idea that the recipe would "serve 10" seems preposterous to me. Maybe 10 little kids. Or 10 people who have a lot of other food choices and will only take little helpings of ambrosia. But not 10 people who, like me and my family, see a bowl full of ambrosia, get excited, and take great, healthy helpings of the stuff in anticipation of it being gone by the time they go back for seconds. For that lot, better make more. I wouldn't necessarily double the whole recipe, however. It's got plenty of mandarin oranges; maybe just double the fruit salad, put in 1 1/2 times the recommended marshmallows and coconut, and use 12-14 oz of sour cream instead of 8. (I don't do the nuts.) Adding some red grapes or pineapple chunks can also work.

Perfect ambrosia in my opinion!! There are many ways to make this - including those recipes that use cool whip instead of sour cream (too sweet for me) - but I made the right choice going with this one, it's just right. I used Fat Free sour cream and enjoyed this as a healthy TREAT.
Added some cherries and took out the nuts. Very yummy!! I've been looking for a good and easy recipe that had sour cream instead of Cool Whip and this was it!!
This is THE BEST ambrosia recipe out there! Exactly like my grandfather made for years every Thanksgiving. Thank you for sharing =)
this salad was so easy and good! I was thrown off by the sour cream at first, but it works for this salad. My four year old loved picking out the marshmellow and nuts, then goobled down the rest.
I have been searching for this recipe for years! It was so easy to make, my family loved it! Great!
THANK-YOU . . . my ex's mother used to make this all the time and I LOVED it . . . and now I finally have teh recipe! the only thing different was use the colored mini marshmallows! BUT the sour cream is key, I like it sooo much better than whipped cream!
