This is the perfect side for any holiday meal rather it's Thanksgiving or 4th of July. You can mix it up with adding your favorite fruits and nuts to really make it special too. I found the original recipe on http://www.momontimeout.com/2015/08/ambrosia-salad-recipe/ It is super light and fluffy! It went great with our Friendsgiving this year!
8 oz tub of Cool Whip
1/2 cup sour cream
11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
20 oz can crushed pineapples, drained
10 oz jar maraschino cherries, halved, patted dry
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
2 cups mini marshmallows
3/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, cashews) - optional
* we added 1/2 cup chopped up strawberries
Mix sour cream and cool whip together in a bowl. Fold in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
