This Great Ambrosia Salad Will Taste Like Childhood

Print Recipe

There’s nothing more nostalgic to me as grandma's Ambrosia salad on holidays. I loved it so much that I made her make it every time I came over. Now I want to share this wonderful recipe with you.

This creamy dessert salad has bursts of pineapple, cherries, oranges and crunchy pecans. Oooops I almost forgot the fruity mini marshmallows that bring this “salad” to a whole other level!


  • 8 ounces cool whip, thawed
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 11 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 8 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 cup maraschino cherries, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
  • 1 1/2 cups Mini Fruit-Flavored Marshmallows


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the whipped topping and yogurt.
  2. Using a rubber spatula, carefully fold remaining ingredients into whipped topping.
  3. Chill before serving.
