Ambrosia. It’s one of those proper southern recipes that no one can really agree on. Love it, hate it… Which fruit to use… It’s all up in the air. But one thing is for sure, this fruit salad (sometimes dessert) makes its obligatory appearances at almost all southern gatherings. That’s why summer, the season of plenty, certainly warrants its own ambrosia– something light, but with a little sass– one with fat blackberries, pineapple, bright lime and shredded coconut. A blackberry margarita ambrosia is just what this season calls for.
What You Need To Make Blackberry Margarita Ambrosia
- Cool Whip
- lime yogurt
A blackberry margarita ambrosia is perfect dish to grace every garden party, family reunion and potluck from here to the Mason-Dixon Line. Light and easy, it’s a snap to throw together, but proper enough to break out the crystal bowl. Lime zest is the secret to its delightful lime taste.
A little lime yogurt folded into the Cool Whip rounds out its light and fluffy dressing and gives it that little something extra that lets your guests know this isn’t their grandmother’s ambrosia.
And marshmallows! Usually, I would never. But this is ambrosia, so I must. And these soft sugary pillows against the burst of berries and bright lime are just another reason that the basics of this longstanding fruit salad just work, grandma’s recipe or not.
An extra dollop of Cool Whip and little lime zest as garnish top off this fun little summer salad/dessert with the flair and finesse it deserves without too much fuss. Besides, extra Cool Whip is always a plus!
Good classics and tradition are always in season. Now with this Blackberry Margarita Ambrosia, summer can properly celebrate with a fruit salad of its own!
