Today was a perfect day for grilling outside with a couple of friends. Nothing is a better compliment to food from the hot grill than the sweet cool taste of fluffy Ambrosia salad. I have been eating this stuff since I was a kid and I still love it. It makes about 10 to 12 servings and only takes 5 minutes to prepare.
1 - 11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
1 - 8 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 - 8 oz container of cool whip, thawed
1/4 cup nut pecans
Marshino cherries (optional)
Gently fold all ingredients together using a spatula. Cover and refridgerate until ready to serve.
