Ambrosia Fruit Salad

We do a lot of fruit salads in our house.  I think they go great with those “one pot” meals that have meat and veggies all in one – just a quick side dish that compliments nicely.  This is a quick one that is super tasty.  Make sure you put the cinnamon on before serving – really makes this dish!  Recipe from the “All Recipes” cookbook.

Ingredients:

-1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

-2 1/2 cups shredded coconut

-1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

-1 (8 oz) can fruit cocktail, drained

-1 (8 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained

-1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, drained

-3 cups miniature marshmallows

-1 (10 oz) jar maraschino cherries, drained (optional)

-1 tsp ground nutmeg

-1 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

1.  In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.  You can leave some of the juice from the cherries if you wish – gives the salad a nice pink color.  Mix together well and refrigerate 30 to 45 minutes.

2.  Sprinkle with cinnamon on top of each individual serving.
