Our Newer Ambrosia is a super-sweet make-ahead fruit salad loaded with sweetened fruit pieces in a creamy base! Yum - Now we know why ambrosia was so popular in the 1950's!

What You'll Need

  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks in heavy syrup, drained
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 6 Maraschino cherries, cut in half (optional)
  • Crushed nuts for garnish (optional)

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and toss gently.

  2. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours to marry the flavors. (Overnight is even better!)

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

there's different recipes I use cool whip instead of sour cream, but I will try this one.I also add a little amt. of the cherry juice to the coolwhip.

What is so new about this? My mother made it over 50 years ago.

I have made this salad for years. I prefer to use canned cherries rather than marachino cherries, crushed pineapple in pineapple juice and no nuts. Do let chill overnight. Really improves the flavour.
