Personally, I'm not a fan, but my wife loves ambrosia. I'm looking for a good recipe to make some for her. Thank you. (PS. I realize this is not a complicated dish and if its just mix whipped cream with pineapples, let me know in a nice way)Thanks
My mother always made a delectable version of ambrosia using, as fruits, canned pineapple and canned mandarin orange segments. Instead of using all whipped cream, she used a half-half combination of whipped cream and plain yogurt (much more tart and somehow richer). Her trick to make this an elegant dish was to add a goodly splash of Cointreau to the whipped cream mixture, and to serve in a crystal bowl.
Note: she served this at many diplomatic functions and always included mini-marshmallows. This inclusion really isn't that trashy; it adds an interesting texture contrast. People always raved and there were never any leftovers.
