To Store: This Ambrosia Salad should be covered or placed in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will keep for up to 3 days. After that point you may notice it begins to get watery but the fruit will keep for up to 5 days.
To Freeze: This salad should not be frozen.
For best results, make this salad ahead of time so it has a chance to sit. This helps blend the flavors and makes the marshmallows soften which sweetens the recipe.
Make sure to drain all fruit ingredients well so the dish isn’t watery.
You can leave the large tropical fruit whole instead of slicing it into smaller pieces. This will give the fruit in your salad a variety of sizes, adding some texture to the salad.
