What is your favorite childhood memory? Maybe I’m a little strange but all of mine seem to have something to do with food. I remember my grandmother making delicious pancakes at the cottage. I remember how Dad made the best flat bread I’ve ever tried (and it was weird, because Dad didn’t use to bake!) And I vividly remember the gorgeous, sunny summer day when we had one of our family reunions.
How does that have to do with food?, you ask. Well, that was the day my aunt brought this incredible dessert with her. I didn’t know what it was, at the time – I just thought it looked like a colorful cloud and it tasted amazing. Later on I found out it was called ambrosia salad and I thought the name sounded beautiful, too!
Since then I’ve tried many ambrosia salad recipes but this one from Baking In The Sun is my absolute favorite. It’s ridiculously easy to make and all my favorite flavors are in there. I especially love the mini marshmallows! Of course you could leave those out if you’d prefer to just have fruits in this lovely dessert.
