In Name: It is a female name (commonly known as Amber).

Ambrosia Anderson....A professional WNBA basketball player..

To Me: It is a fruit salad ..and sometimes dessert.


When going to a potluck it seems I am always short of time as well as ideas, But my good friend fluffy ambrosia salad , always comes through for me . Easy to make, delicious and a big hit as well....I almost always step out of the box ( the recipe, that is ) and add a few more goodies to the bowl...pears , peaches and/or grapes....and when I am really strapped for time I have used cool whip or canned whipping cream.

When taking this to a potluck , I leave the lettuce behind , and just bring it in as is. it looks really pretty sitting on the table in a glass bowl.....the bowl is always empty when I leave the party.
