    diner524's Note:

    My Mother made this salad for every Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners. I remember looking forward to this the most, as a kid, as I loved the marshmallows and the fruit. My Mom made a big bowl of this and added shredded coconut to half of it and left the other without for those of us non-coconut lovers. This is so quick and easy yet so tasty and refreshing, especially with a big heavy holiday meal. I also found out that this is a common Hawaiian Luau side dish. Time does not include chilling time.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Drain all cans of fruit.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl add drained fruit, marshmallows, sour cream and coconut if using. Mix well to combine.
    3. 3
      Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, overnight if possible. This allows the juices to blend with the marshmallows and sour cream.
    4. 4
      One hour before serving, slice bananas and add to rest of the fruit, stir to combine.
    5. 5
      If it seems to dry add a little more sour cream.
    6. 6
      Enjoy!

      I was a bit iffy on using sour cream but this ended up being the best ambrosia salad I have ever had! The first time I used the bananas but I could not even taste them. The second time was apples but it was the wrong consistency. The third time was the charm with a cup of diced strawberries. This recipe is definetely a favorite of mine

      This was like a trip to the holidays at my grandma's! Cool, comforting, and delicious. I waited to fold in the bananas until serving & sprinkled with toasted coconut (just because that's how my grandma did it.) Thanks for reminding me of the recipe! Made for ZWT7.
