Happy Thursday! If you caught my post lastThursday, you know that I shared a recipe for Eric’s grandma’s Chocolate Glazed Donuts.

In that post, I discussed that I would periodically be featuring retro recipes from our childhoods for #tbt – “Throwback” Thursday.”

If you’re not sure about #tbt, it’s basically a weekly Twitter and Instagram “holiday” that compels people to share photos from an earlier time in their lives.

We’ve been going through cookbooks, recipe clippings and handwritten recipes, trying to gather a selection of our favorites to share with you. Today’s #tbtrecipe is Ambrosia Salad.

I fondly remember my Nana making Ambrosia Salad for pretty much every church function. The only problem was that we couldn’t find her recipe. Total bummer – I know.

My aunt came across an Ambrosia Salad recipe in Nana’s church cookbook, but we knew it was not the one she used because it contained cottage cheese.

And Nana’s most definitely did not contain cottage cheese, we knew that she used frozen whipped topping.

Naturally I decided to start tossing ingredients into a bowl until the Ambrosia Salad tasted similar to Nana’s. And with a little tweaking, I most definitely succeeded!

Ingredients

1 bags mini marshmallows
1/2 cup sour cream
8 oz. cool whip
1 lb. can fruit cocktail
1 (2 lb.) canned mandarin oranges
Extra maraschino cherries; halved, to liking.
Optional:
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup walnuts

Directions
Mix well. Refrigerate overnight. Makes 1 large family sized bowl.
