This is a simple, tasty, and colorful variation of a classic ambrosia salad. My son loves it; he keeps asking me when I'm going to make some more of that 'marshmallow casserole'!

This is my favorite salad. I added strawberry cool whip to a vanilla yogurt and a half a bag of mini marshmallows with fresh strawberries! My family loved it!

This recipe is also great using sour cream instead of yogurt, flaked coconut, chunk pineapple, maraschino cherries, and the colored mini marshmellows.

I really liked this. I took it to a gathering at a friend's house, and her teenaged daughter loved it! I've made regular ambrosia with sour cream, oranges, pineapple, and coconut, but I like the healthier option of using yogurt, and it tasted every bit as good. I think the tanginess of the yogurt offsets the sweetness of the marshmallows, and if your strawberries are a little on the tart side you could balance it out by using vanilla or pineapple yogurt. I might modify my own regular recipe next time, by substituting yogurt and adding strawberries to all the other fruit. Still, this recipe is five-star, just as written. Thanks eclectricity, for a great recipe and a great idea!
