Pasta Salad Series: Frog Eye Salad
Do you ever peek into the deli counter and see that fluffy ambrosia salad and wonder if you can make it on your own? My dear friend Alyssa recently posted on the OAMM facebook page that she was making some Frog Eye Salad and I immediately responded to her that I needed this recipe! And there were a few other OAMM readers that responded as well. I asked Alyssa and she agreed to share her family delight. It’s not necessarily whole foods but it sure is tasty. I did cut a few whole foods corners though. I made my own whipped cream, picked up some natural marshmallows. And it’s just like the ambrosia from your local deli!
