Ambrosia Fruit Salad

A Southern staple and Christmas tradition, ambrosia salad is a fruit salad with oranges, pineapple, cherries, coconut, and whipped cream. Other variations include yogurt, pudding, or sour cream in place of whipped cream and can be found with other fruit options as well. This sweet dish is interestingly named after the food eaten by the Greek gods.
