When I went to my niece’s baby shower here in Connecticut, for the brunch, I brought along an easy favorite Jello Ambrosia Salad of fresh fruit.
It was a perfect day and lunch was served on the lovely Veranda porch in a historic home in one of Connecticut’s oldest towns.
Ambrosia Salad Jello Fluff
It was quite warm for a New England day in spring, and at the baby shower we enjoyed a luncheon buffet of grilled eggplant, fresh spring asparagus and zucchini along with the most yummy chicken salad made with cranberries and walnuts.
My Jello Ambrosia recipe is an easy yet simple, elegant brunch trifle dessert or side dish made from Jello, fresh fruit, marshmallows and whipped cream or Cool Whip – perfect for baby or bridal shower luncheons, buffets, picnics or a get-together on the deck! Serve it or take it in a pretty clear glass Trifle Bowl or Punch Bowl! I made this sweet dessert with fresh blueberries and pineapple.
For any holiday, family gathering, party or cookout, you can make this with dried cranberries, strawberries, strawberry or raspberry Jello or use your imagination !
