- Mix pineapple, oranges, sour cream, marshmallows, and coconut together in a bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until flavors blend, 2 hours to overnight.
- Cook's Notes:
- You CAN serve the salad immediately, but I recommend letting it set in the fridge for a few hours as it lets the flavors combine and taste even better. You can make this recipe healthier by using fresh fruit and low or reduced-fat sour cream (which we do), but I do not recommend omitting the marshmallows unless you have your own substitution that can pick up the texture. For more flavor you can add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg to taste.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SALAD!! It's best served ICE cold. I add 1 cup of shredded coconut instead of 3/4 cup. I also use fat free sour cream and the canned fruits are in their own juices.
I use crushed pineapple instead and I add maraschino cherries!
Love ambrosia salad! So delicious. This recipe was good. I substituted half the sour cream with cool whip (8oz sour cream and 8 oz cool whip), and it turned out perfectly to our tastes. Have mad...
Excellent. Made mostly as listed, I used flavored mini marshmallows (orange, strawberry, lemon & lime) and you definitely need to let chill 2+ hours or more so flavors blend. Will definitely mak...
Different than the Ambrosia salads I'm used to. Less sweet, and I could only find crushed pineapple, not tidbits, so mine was more watery. I added chopped pecans, and that was a MUST DO! Enjoyed...
I've made this many times through the years, with different variations depending on who was coming over to eat. Sometimes I have had to add more ingredients for some in a separate bowl. My daugh...
