I used to make this recipe a long time ago, from the BH&G cookbook. I, too, was confused by the amount of pineapple juice to add. To get two cups of pineapple, I had to open two cans. I didn't see a stated amount to add to the dressing, altho I sure didn't think adding all that I reserved would work!! The cooked part of the dressing didn't thicken that much on it's own (and I use jumbo eggs), but after mixing with the whipped cream, I was satisfied with the texture. (And still am, the day after.) My salad didn't get watery and the dressing certainly was not too thick. Next time I may add a little more sugar to the dressing or maybe some to the whipping cream, as this salad was not very sweet. I don't have a sweet tooth and don't like my food overly sweet, but this could use a bit more sweetness. Or I'll stick to the ambrosia recipe from the back of the Dole can...faster, cheaper, and, maybe not better, but certainly just as good!!
