    I was asked to make ambrosia salad for a special event, but had never made it before. I decided to try this recipe and was not disappointed. 5 stars! For any fellow first-timers, it is runny when you first "assemble" it, but as it chills it congeals nicely.

    You didn't list the Nutrician facts for some recipes. I can use them if I don't know the facts.
