    Always heard there is no such thing as a dumb question, so here's mine: Is the pudding already made when added, (per the instructions on the box), or do you simply add the dry pudding mix and the above ingredients suffice to make the pudding/whipped topping mixture?

    My family is not fond of coconut. Can this ingredient just be omitted?

    Delicious! I love ambrosia, and this one is great.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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).
