"I used with homemade whipped cream instead of store bought whipped topping. This was delicious. I might try with sugar free pudding next time just to cut some of the calories. Our first time was for the 4th of July, and it will soon be a regular for special parties and holidays! I bet the addition of pecans would be good too, but not everyone likes them, so I might just add to my serving next time."
"Who doesn't love a good ambrosia salad? Perfect for holidays or picnics. I liked the mix of fruit in this recipe and the fact that it doesn't call for nuts."
"This was the absolute hit of Thanksgiving dinner! Thanks for sharing it. now to get it made for Christmas! :) Happy Holidays"
"Made this for Christmas Eve dinner buffet. I loved loved loved this. I made it the day before. I added toasted pecans and a honey crisp apple cut up. I used white chocolate pudding because it was what I had on hand. Very delicious. My mom will be visiting in a couple of days and I am going to make this again for her because I know she will love it too. So I will have made this twice in one week! I drained the canned fruit in a colander and then overnight in the frig' in a dish lined with paper towels. I will do that again. The salad did not get "watery" at all even after two days."
"Really Tasty! Cheaper then what I could find at my local deli and it was easy to make. I used a collander to help drain all the juices from the canned fruit. I will definately make this again! I made this for our family 4th of July BBQ."
"Excellent recipe. I will make this often in the future. I added a can of fruit cocktail drained and I had some strawberries I needed to use, so I threw them in there. It came out great. Will take to the next potluck."
"very good...I make this often especially for the Holidays. I use colored marshmellows for Easter."
"well like someone else said. i replaced the peaches with the tropical fruit can (cherries come in it too) so it all worked out. it was a bit too creamy for me but i just added another can of tropical fruit and this was the besstttt ambrosia salad i have EVERRR made. love this recipe and i will keep it forever!"
"Very good, light tasting, I make it for the Holidays now. Will try the flavored marshmallows next time, kids would like that."
"Really good and really easy. My 12 year old daughter made it all by herself!"
"I used fruit cocktail instead of the peaches. Everyone at Christmas dinner became nostalgic for their childhood after eating this ambrosia salad. It was very easy to make and tasted fantastic. I highly recommend this recipe! I would give this 10 stars (if it were possible)."
"This was fantastic!! I've never made it with the pudding mix but it made ALL the difference! It was creamy and delicious! I used 1 box (1.5 oz total) of sugar free vanilla pudding and it worked out perfectly! So easy to make! I could have eaten the whole bowl myself."
"Yummy! I love Ambrosia but was looking for a non sour cream based one that my kids could enjoy (they love fruit, coconut and marshmellows but hate sour cream). This is a definite welcome twist! Next time I might try fat free whipped topping and sugar free pudding to cut the calories/fat a bit but I wanted to make the original version first. The only thing I changed is to use French Vanilla instant pudding as my store was all out of regular Vanilla. It was good and makes a bunch."
"Ambrosia Salad is a great congealed salad! It is very light and refreshing - and not too sweet. The only changes I made were to use flavored miniature marshmallows and I left out the flaked coconut (personal choice). The flavored marshmallows went very well with the fruits and looked pretty as well. That was my 9-yr old daughter's idea. By the way, it is also easy to make. Always a plus! Thanks LEEEZAH for a great recipe!"
