Spring is here! I’m so thankful for the warmer weather and sunny days, which leads to more time outside. After a long winter, I’m ready for that fresh air.

Since the weather is beautiful outside, I’ve been thinking about hosting a family and friend cookout soon. Of course, I’ll have burgers, hot dogs, and the like, but I want to start thinking about the best part – the sides!

When I was a kid, my grandmother always had a fruit salad of some kind for family functions and gatherings, but there was one that was my absolute favorite – ambrosia fruit salad! It’s a staple in my family.
