wow this was very good will make again..

I followed this exactly and it was a hit. It's so light. I will definitely make it again

Delicious! I substituted a can of fruit cocktail for one of the cans of pineapple. Out was just how my mom makes it! Thank you

Its bland because they left out the main ingredient! You need 2 boxes of pistachio pudding mix.

Reminded be of a Ambrosia Fruit Salad my aunt used to make. My wife didn't care for the texture of the coconut but I liked it. I did add some peaches and overall I found it refreshing.
