I doubled this recipe except for the yogurt and loved it. I did use yogurt over sour cream because I am watching my weight, but I did use vanilla flavoured yogurt which suited this recipe very well.

My MIL makes this except she calls it "Ambrosia" either way I love this salad and it is a regular on our Easter dinner table. Thanks for sharing a great "old fashioned" recipe! :)

this is my recipe (can't remember where i got the recipe, think just word of mouth and now i am grandma! used to take this to so many "bring-your-own-dish" gatherings. but back then it wasn't just the kids who loved it, we all did. makes me smile to see it on the internet.
