Growing up my mother made this ambrosia salad a lot. I loved it. I could not get enough of it. It's versatile, easy and delicious.
I have to tell you that I am totally and utterly addicted to my sewing machine these days. I still like to create in the kitchen but there is something about creating something with my hands and being able to enjoy it for a while. I have been making quilts, purses, crafts, whatever. Some nights I could care less what we are having for dinner as long as I can get it made in 30 minutes or less. Yup, me. This salad is one of those whip ups at the last minute. Or you can go a bit more fancy and do some more with it.
Here's what I did and the usual way to do it is in parentheses
1 pint of my canned maraschino cherries (store bought maraschinos will work wonderfully as well)
2 cans of mandarin oranges, drained
2 cans fruit cocktail, drained
1 banana, sliced
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1 cup heavy cream, whipped (6- 8 ounces sour cream)
Mix it all together and let it sit or be like me and eat it right away.
