Well, last week on my link party I saw this delicious recipe from Kelley over at The Grant Life and she inspired me to create my own. So I looked through my cookbook and found one I had forgotten about from my cousin Elena's Mom Connie. I have had Connie's version several times and it's delicious. But me being me, I really wanted to incorporate some new ingredients so I combined some of Kelley's ingredients with some of Connie's and I came up with a new and super delicious Ambrosia Salad. Give it a try ~ Don't be afraid ~ it's really yummy :) Let me know what'cha think.
Here's what you need:
1 - 3 oz. fruit punch Jell-O gelatin mix
1 - 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits with juice
1/2 of a 14 oz. package of sweetened coconut (approx 1 - 1-1/2 cups)
8 oz. tub of Cool whip
1/4 cup sour cream
Super simple directions ~
Place all ingredients in a medium to large bowl and mix well.
I'd never heard of the fruit punch Jell-O before. It sure is yummy!
It's like a pink fluffy cloud of yummy goodness!
After it's all mixed together and you've had several bites just to be sure it's mixed well enough, place in the fridge for a few hours (at least 2 up to overnight) to get cold and set.
Great as a summer side dish to any meal or all by itself for, breakfast, lunch, or a snack :)
Some additional add in’s you could use:
Different flavors of Jell-O
Serves 8 - 10
