Can You Count To 5? Then You Can Make This Salad
Ambrosia salad is something I used to have a lot when I was young, except it wasn’t called ambrosia at our house.
My mother and grandmother made it often, but they used to call it fruit salad or cream salad, instead of ambrosia. I don’t know where the name ambrosia came from but based on my quick online search, ambrosia salad recipes started appearing in American cookbooks towards the end of 1800’s.
Wow! I had no idea it was such an old dish! But it still never gets old (no pun intended) and I love making this salad for all kinds of parties, potlucks and family gatherings. It is a staple on our party menus, but I know some people consider this a summer BBQ dish.
It doesn’t really matter when you make this – it’s delicious year ’round and your guests are always going to love it! The best part is, you need an equal amount of five ingredients for this, so it is super easy to remember or tweak to your taste.

Quick Tip: Although you can serve this right after making it, we recommend letting it stand in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
