"I made this salad for Thanksgiving dinner and I have to agree with other reviewers that it would be best if you cut back the amount of spices used. Also a bit more cool-whip would help it. It is good ..." See morethough and I would try it again!"
"I tried this recipe "as is" and then made it again with half the coconut and half the spices. Much better in my opinion with just half of these ingredients...." See more"
"This Ambrosia was one of the first to go at a recent salad/dessert bar I hosted. For personal preference I omitted half the coconut, half the marshmallows, half the cool whip, the can of fruit cocktai..." See morel, 3/4 the nutmeg and 1/2 the cinnamon. Instead I used half sour cream and half coolwhip in the dressing, and chopped fresh oranges in place of fruit cocktail. As you can see, I changed it quite a bit. But it was a definite hit, and I will make my version again. Thanks Kimberly."
