Ambrosia Watergate Salad


We love this tasty treat! It is light, sweet and fruity! This recipes makes quite a big bowl and it does keep for a few days. It is one of those recipes that you can find at every potluck because everyone really likes it! I try to make it often in the summertime because it is a cool dessert that I can make ahead. My aunt used to put different flavors of gelatin in this also to give it a different kick. She would always ask who was going to bring this dish to a potluck. There a more variations of this one and you can always add different fruits. Just keep in mind that it can get watery so make sure you drain the can fruit completely!
