Healthy Ambrosia Salad is packed full of pineapple, mandarin oranges, and chopped apple. Coated with a layer of Greek yogurt and whipped topping, you will love the flavors in a healthy take on this traditional salad.
I grew up eating fruit salad at Sunday dinners, holidays, and church potlucks. This version is similar to the traditional version but made with healthier ingredients. But, it is so tasty you won't notice the difference.
This salad includes the traditional pineapple, mandarin oranges, and shredded coconut. To mix things up I included green grapes and chopped red apples.
A light cream sauce coats the fruit with Greek yogurt, avocado mayonnaise, and fat-free whipped topping. Lemon and orange juices complement the fruit and also helps keep the apple from browning. Salt helps bring out the flavors.
This is a quick and simple dish.
First, start by chopping your pineapple and slicing the grapes in half. Roughly chop apple without peeling it into 1/4-1/2 inch pieces. Place in a glass bowl and set aside.
Next, combine the Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, and fat-free whipped topping. Whisk in orange juice and salt. Combine the fruit with the dressing and lightly toss to coat the fruit.
Place in a glass dish, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
