This contemporary update of the recipe uses fresh fruit and shaved coconut, and can almost be considered a palate cleanser, similar to a sorbet or light salad.

Why Try? At a large meal, this fresh-fruit version of Ambrosia provides a bright, refreshing contrast.

Foodie Byte: We love the taste and contemporary appearance of shaved sweetened coconut as an alternative to traditional shredded coconut.


  1. Using a sharp knife, cut away peel and white pith from oranges. Slice oranges into 1/8-inch wheels.
  2. Combine in large bowl with grapefruit and pineapple.
  3. Add coconut, sugar, salt and sherry and gently toss to blend.
  4. Chill, covered, at least one hour.
