Aunt Vel’s Southern Ambrosia

Southern Ambrosia

Southern Ambrosia

Ambrosia is a southern classic on the holiday table and there are literally
hundreds of variations on the basic idea of ambrosia. This recipe is my Aunt
Vel’s and it is a fairly straightforward ambrosia, which I like because it’s not
too sweet or overly complicated. It is great with baked ham or roasted turkey.

This is what you will need for this:

1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
1 cup mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup nuts, chopped (pecans or walnuts)
1 cup sour cream
2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 Tbs. powdered sugar
maraschino cherries for garnish (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients together until combined, chill and serve. So simple
and so good! If you are looking for a little more variation in an ambrosia type
salad, you might also want to check out Pina Colada Ambrosia or Banana Split
