My favorite part of Easter brunch at my grandmother’s house was always her pierogi’s and her famous Ambrosia Salad for dessert. I attempted making my own Ambrosia the other day for a baby shower at work. It wasn’t the recipe she used but it sure did bring back memories.
1 large package orange jell-o
2 cups water
1 16 oz Cool-Whip (lite or fat-free is fine)
1/2 bag mini marshmallows
Mix together pudding, Jell-o, and water over medium heat until it boils. Remove from heat and pour into a large mixing bowl. Refrigerate until mixture has thickened (about an hour). Beat until creamy. Fold in Cool Whip, marshmallows, and fruit. Chill about an hour before serving.
