Blueberry Ambrosia Salad | Fresh Fruit Pineapple | Jello Fluff

When I went to my niece's baby shower here in Connecticut, for the brunch, I brought along an easy favorite Jello Fluff Ambrosia Salad of fresh fruit.  What's nice about Ambrosia Fluff is that it can double as a dessert too. Make is with cranberries for Thanksgiving, Pineapple for Easter - use your imagination!

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.

Outside Dining

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 such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas , family gathering, party or cookout, you can make this with dried cranberries, strawberries, strawberry, orange, pistachio or raspberry Jello or use your imagination and add the berries or nuts of your choice!
