How to make Ambrosia Salad

Drain the pineapple chunks and mandarin oranges well. You can use a sieve to remove excess liquid. Pat dry with paper towels if needed.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the drained pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, mini marshmallows, and shredded coconut.

Gently fold in the sour cream until all ingredients are evenly coated. Be careful not to crush the fruit or marshmallows.

Next, fold in the whipped topping until everything is well combined and the salad is creamy.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the Ambrosia Salad for at least 1 hour before serving. Chilling helps the flavors meld together.

Before serving, garnish the Ambrosia Salad with maraschino cherries if desired. Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy!

This delightful Ambrosia Salad is a classic favorite that's perfect for potlucks, picnics, or as a sweet side dish for any occasion.
