Ambrosia Compote Recipe

Ambrosia Compote Recipe

This sparkling fruit salad is versatile and pretty enough for dessert. I like to vary the fruits ... and will sometimes top them off with a dollop of ginger-laced whipped cream or yuletide star fruit garnish.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks
  • 3 medium navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 3 medium firm bananas, sliced
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes
  • 1 cup flaked coconut, divded
  • 1/2 cup ginger ale, chilled
  • 1 tablespoon sliced star fruit, optional

Directions

  • 1. Drain pineapple; reserving juice. In a large bowl, add the bananas, pineapple, grapes, oranges and half the coconut; pour reserved juice over the fruit; lightly toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
  • 2. Just before serving, pour ginger ale over salad and sprinkle with remaining coconut. Serve with a slotted spoon. Garnish with star fruit if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
