Best Ambrosia Salad

This is seriously the BEST way to make Ambrosia Salad!

Wikipedia says, "In ancient Greek mythology, ambrosia (Greek: ἀμβροσία) is sometimes the food or drink of the Greek gods, often depicted as conferring immortality upon whoever consumed it.[1] It was brought to the gods in Olympus by doves,[2] so it may have been thought of in the Homeric tradition as a kind of divine exhalation of the Earth."

That describes this delish dish perfectly!
And it's my favorite fruit salad dish to bring to all my spring and summer parties!


1 Tub of Cool Whip
2 Cups of Cottage Cheese
2 Cups of Shredded Sweetened Coconut
2 Cups of Mini Marshmallows
1 Sm Pkg of Strawberry Jello
1 Jar of Maraschino Cherries (drained)
1 Can of Mandarin Oranges (drained)
1 Cup of Fresh Pineapple (thickly sliced)
1 Cup Fresh Green Grapes (rinsed & halved)
1 Cup Fresh Blueberries (rinsed)

*You can buy the already canned fruit cocktail, but I prefer fresh! It tastes so much better!

 To make, start by mixing the first 4 ingredients listed: Cool Whip, Cottage Cheese, Coconut & Marshmallows.

Then mix in the Jello.

Then add the last few ingredients: Cherries, Mandarin Oranges, Pineapple, Grapes & Blueberries!
It's a rainbow of FUN!

Doesn't it look amazing? I crave it all the time. You can be as creative as you want with your fruit choices as well as Jello flavors. I've tried it with Cherry and that was just as good!

Have a Happy 4th of July Everyone and Thanks for Stopping by!
