"Baby" Ambrosia Salad

From Marcia Dye


  • 1 1/4 cups of chilled full-fat coconut milk (take the good stuff from the top of the can first)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon zest 
  • 3 Tbsp organic lemon juice 
  • 3 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla

Whisk all together until smooth and put aside.

Any fruit you like, in a big salad bowl - I used a combo about like this:

  • 3 cups sweet green grapes 
  • 3 cups fresh pineapple, sliced and cut into small wedges (you can cheat and buy a naked, cored pineapple from the produce/salad section)
  • 1/2 cup (for some of us) OR 1c (for some others of us) maraschino cherries blotted and halved
  • 2/3 cup toasted (do it! - totally different flavour) pecan pieces
  • 2/3 cup big toasted coconut slices 
  • ½-1 whole bag of mini marshmallows

Throw the dressing over it and mix quite well before tossing in somewhere between and half and a whole bag of mini marshmallows. I used a bit more than half... I would like to say 2/3 of the bag. Go easy mixing in the marshmallows. Enjoy!
