Auntie Gayle's Ambrosia Salad

Ambrosia Salad 

My Auntie came and stayed with us the first Christmas we had lost our Mum. Mum passed in October on the 15th, so not a lot of time to absorb any of the shock. What I will never forget about that Christmas is Auntie Gayle cleaned my oven, did all my laundry and made this kick ass salad! Thanks Auntie Gayle!

6-8 oz maraschino cherries (drained then quartered)
6 oz mandarin oranges (drained)
8 oz pineapple (chunks drained)
20 oz pineapple (crushed, drained)
15 oz fruit cocktail very cherry (drained)
16 oz sour cream
8 oz cool whip
3 1/2 oz instant vanilla pudding or seasonal pudding
2 cups marshmallows or fruity marshmallows or seasonal marshmallows
3/4 cup flaked coconut (optional)

Drain & quarter cherries first. Then drain & squeeze the crushed pineapple. Then you drain & add the remaining canned ingredients and stir in the pudding mix, sour cream & cool whip. Add the marshmallows last and stir them in gently.
2Chill then serve.
