This is my doctored up version of a diet ambrosia salad my mom always made. I admit that this sounds strange, but it really is sweet and refreshing on a hot summer day! (It's not as low-cal as hers.) It's also easy to adjust to your family's fruit preferences. Be sure to drain the fruit very well so the salad is not too soupy.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large non-metallic serving bowl, stir together the crushed pineapple, sugar, and ricotta cheese until well blended. Stir in the fruit cocktail, pineapple tidbits, strawberries, apples and nectarines. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight. The longer you refrigerate before serving, the better it will taste.

Iyou don t like the grainy texture of ricotta then why would you make a recipe that is based on it and then give it a low score? That s so nasty! I don t like eggplant so should I make recipes with eggplant and then give them one star because they still taste like eggplant?! Same thing right? Read More

The ricotta remained grainy and gave this salad an odd texture. Read More
