Does anyone know how to make the dessert salad that has mini-marshmallows, mandarin oranges and coconut in a sour cream-like sauce? I grew up calling this ambrosia. I have searched for a recipe but can't find one.

Most people I know think this dessert is gross, but I love it.

Or, you could just go to Safeway, to the deli department, and get it there. Yes, it's called Ambrosia... and I too love that shit. (I use "shit" in the most positive of ways.)
eta:
found this:
Ambrosia Dessert

1 (16-ounce) can pineapple chunks
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 (4-serving-size) package instant pistachio pudding mix
1 cup each: shredded coconut or chopped walnuts or pecans
1 (12- to 16-ounce ) container nondairy whipped topping, thawed
1 cup miniature marshmallows

Drain pineapple chunks and crushed pineapple. Reserve liquid for another use.

Sprinkle pudding mix on top. Let mixture set for three minutes.

Combine coconut and nuts; fold into pineapple mixture. Slowly blend in whipped topping and marshmallows.

Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

To really perk up this dish, add a small jar of drained maraschino cherries. Also, you can make individual servings in pretty sherbet or wine glasses and sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon sugar for a beautiful presentation.

It's available at my local A&P too. But I never trust the freshness of some of their less popular deli stuff, so I'd rather make it myself.

I didn't know anyone actually ate that. Nor did I know it had such a pretty name. Gross. Say, can anyone help me with a jello salad recipe?

Eeewww. Traumatic flashback: orange jello salad with peas in it.

Wouldn't that be a violation of the Geneva Convention and several laws of nature?

Oh, the abuse I suffered as a child at family dinners. Let's not go there. Do you really want to hear about the hot cottage cheese with peaches? The peanut butter balls that were rolled in skim milk powder? The ... must go barf now ....

I noticed it on an original Star Trek once. Yup, ambrosia with Romulan ale.

I used to eat cold cottage cheese with peaches. Or fruit cocktail or any other canned fruit mixed in. Kind of like yogurt. But its' cottage cheese.

But peanut butter balls rolled in skim milk powder.? Why?

Nothing wrong with cold cottage cheese but hot is about as appetizing as hot lettuce. The skim milk powder was the finishing touch to the peanut butter balls (which also contained raisins). The powder was to stop the delicacies sticking.

Are you sure it was skim milk powder and not icing sugar?
