Ambrosia Salad

Here is a classic Southern favorite. It's a snap to whip up and my recipe has a tropical twist if you use mango instead of oranges.

Ambrosia Salad

2 cups chopped mango, peaches, or mandarin oranges
2 cups green grapes
1 cup strawberries
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 - 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup maraschino cherries
2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
frozen whipped topping (thawed)

In a large bowl, combine first 7 ingredients. Mix together well and chill for one hour. Fold in whipped topping. Serve immediately.
