Yes, there are many ambrosia recipes out there... I'm only posting mine here for safe keeping & for when I'm asked for the recipe after bringing it to a party/gathering... Don't get me wrong, it's very tasty & I'll mostly only prefer the taste of mine, so if you try it, I hope you enjoy it :-)

  1. I drain & quarter cherries first. Then drain & squeeze the crushed pineapple. Then I drain & add the remaining canned ingredients and stir in the pudding mix, sour cream & cool whip. I add the marshmallows last and stir them in gently.
  2. Chill then serve.

This is the 4th time I am making this Ambrosia. It is delicious.. My crowd scoops it right up. The combo of sour cream, cool whip and Instant pudden gives it a unique taste & consistency.

I would love to try this recipe . Could anyone tell me whether the instant pudding should be prepared as instructed on box or used straight from the box in powder form.

I've never cared much for ambrosia salad. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is a huge fan. I followed this recipe to the letter. Despite my prior disliking of ambrosia salad, I must say that this is a spectacular recipe! In fact, I just joined so that I could write this review. <br/><br/>To be honest, I was skeptical of the adding pudding. It is a brilliant addition. It keeps the salad firm and addresses any potential runniness from all of the fruit. This is a textural adventure, not too sweet and incredibly delicious! I venture to say that BlondieItaliana is a humble genious. Exquisite and delightful dish! Thank you for the recipe!!!
