This Southern staple has been a classic in my home for as long as I can remember. Apples, oranges, pineapples and grapes all tossed together in whipped topping and shredded coconut. It is so delicious! 🙂
I grew up eating this fruit salad at every holiday feast, and of course the 4th of July! I always looked forward to the Ambrosia salad. It makes any holiday plate extra special.
