Ambrosia Salad

Several years ago, a group of ladies at my church put together a recipe book of just salads.  It's maybe 12 pages long and just stapled together paper, but I LOVE it!  It's my go-to recipe book when I need a good salad/side dish.

Easy Ambrosia Salad {5 Ingredients, 1 Cup of Each} from Blissful Roots

Have you ever heard of ambrosia salad?  You probably have eaten it even if you don't recognize the name.  My mom used to make this when I was young, and it's the recipe I contributed to the little cookbook we made.  The thing I love about this recipe is that it has 5 ingredients, and 1 cup of everything.  Easy ingredients, and you practically have the recipe memorized after making it just once.  You can't beat that!
Here's the recipe.

There are lots of versions of ambrosia salad out there, this one is very simple and easy.  Like the recipe states, you can always experiment and add whatever else you'd like (nuts, maraschino cherries, bananas, apples,grapes, the sky's the limit).  The recipe doesn't make a ton, so unless I'm just feeding my own family (husband and three boys) I usually double it.  
I've also tried substituting the sour cream for Cool Whip, and it's yummy. I actually like the sour cream better, but in a pinch Cool Whip works great.  The salad just turns out a bit sweeter than the original version.  
You can click here for the recipe.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
