Gramm’s Easy Ambrosia Fruit Salad



You know when summer has arrived and barbecuing is in full swing when "Gramm’s Easy Ambrosia Fruit Salad" is being served. This sweet, creamsicle-colored concoction of pineapple, mini marshmallows, mandarin oranges, coconut, and sour cream was a tropical fruit salad a giant step beyond the hollowed out watermelon filled with fresh berries and melon. It not only looks good, it taste absolutely delicious on a hot day. A spoonful of something cold, sweet, and creamy that takes just minutes to prepare is an easy win.
