Food Of The Gods
In ancient Greek mythology, ambrosia is often depicted as conferring ageless immortality upon whoever consumes it. Now, I can’t guarantee this lighter version of the classic fruit salad will make you immortal, but it sure is delicious! I think it is the perfect side dish or light dessert to accompany summer’s grilled foods and backyard barbecues.
Better Recipes member tyxe says, “This fresh and creamy salad is a favorite around my house. I make it with plenty of fruit, and the yogurt provides a sweet, creamy dressing. I mix in just enough ‘goodies’ (marshmallows and coconut) so it tastes like the rich, sweet version I grew up without all the extra calories.”
