Ambrosia salad recipe

You all know how much I love my old fashioned potluck recipes! Whether it's my pistachio flakes, this creamy grape salad or our amazing broccoli salad, I LOVE the easy recipes that remind me of the dishes my grandmother made.

This delicious ambrosia salad is no exception. I remember eating variations of this dish at family reunions when I was a kid, and it was a staple at our annual family reunions.

Ragweed fruit salad

If you like the flavors of this ragweed salad, don't miss my ragweed muffins!

One of the things I like a lot about ragweed salad is that it is not too sweet. It's cool, creamy and delicious with bursts of fruity flavor and a little crunch.

Of course, I'm a big fan of coconuts in desserts. After all, my favorite dessert of ALL TIME is these magical coconut bars to die for.

How to make ambrosia salad

When you're ready to whip up your own delicious bowl of ragweed salad, here are the ingredients you'll need:

1 15 oz can mandarin orange segments, drained
1 15 oz can crushed pineapple, well drained
16 ounces. jar of maraschino cherries, rinsed and halved
1 cup sweet coconut
½ cup pecans, chopped
½ cup sour cream
½ cup whipped topping
1 cup mini marshmallows

The instructions for making the recipe really couldn't be easier. Don't you like simple recipes? All you have to do is throw all the prepared items in a large bowl and fold them all together.

Speaking of dump recipes, don't miss my popular cherry dump cake!

Now remember, you're going to want to put your ragweed salad in the fridge so that it cools for about 4 hours or up to one night. The recipe really needs this time to reach its full flavor potential.

For this reason, I like to mix my ambrosia salad in a bowl with a lid. These bowls to mix with lids are fantastic if you buy a set!

Using any old bowl and covering with plastic wrap works great too. 🙂

Ragweed fruit salad

Here's a fun twist on our classic ragweed salad recipe. Instead of using tangerines and maraschino cherries, you can just use a can of fruit cocktail. This twist will add even more color and flavor to your ragweed salad. My kids really love this recipe when I make it using the fruit cocktail!

My kids have an obsession with maraschino cherries, so even if I make this recipe using the fruit cocktail can, I always add extra cherries for them.

You don't like nuts? Just leave them out. my ragweed salad with Cool Whip don't suffer at all without them.
