Instead of being reminded of Christmas, Ambrosia reminds me of the Greek Gods. It is their food of choice after all. But really, in the Philippines, it's something we make during the holidays. Now, weather this is the same "Ambrosia" the Greek Gods eat, I am not sure. But this I am: it's one of the most refreshing fruit salad version I have ever tasted.I'm not sure if this treat is more popularly known by another name but basically it's fruit salad with a tropical twist. Simple to make really. My mom learned how to make it from a family friend we have during our stay up north.
In our home up north, we had a Valencia Orange Tree in our front yard which bears fruits year round. And one the things we do with it (aside from eating it at it's purest form) is to make Ambrosia. Unfortunately, Valencia Orange is not readily available in Manila so I used suha from Davao instead.
