Shh, It's a Secret ... Recipe

    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. The reason why? All of the delicious food!!
    There are so many incredible dishes, that it’s hard to choose which my favorite is. I can’t think of any other holiday where it’s traditional to have as much variety on your plate as at Thanksgiving. Ambrosia salad is a fairly common fruit salad that is served at Thanksgiving. There are a ton of variations of the dish, and to me my mom’s version of ambrosia salad is a key part of the holiday, right there with the turkey and the football!

    This is a super easy recipe that take no time at all to prepare! So, without further ado, I would like to share with you my mother’s take on the classic dish:

    - 4 Apples, chopped into bite sized pieces
    - 3 bananas, sliced
    - Mayonnaise
    - Sweetened Coconut Flakes
    - Walnuts or Pecans

    In a large bowl mix apples, bananas, and mayonnaise to desired level of creaminess. Add small amounts of mayo at a time, to avoid adding too much. Finally, mix in coconut flakes and either walnuts or pecans to taste. 

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
