I haven't had Ambosia since I was a kid (time back WAAAY back). I like the idea of using mandarin oranges - it would be a great time saver - although I like sectioning oranges when I have the time for it.
Another good & simple fruit salad is sectioned oranges, apple and pear slices and grapes (some of the grapes cut in half lengthwise). Drizzle over the fruit a simple syrup flavored with cinnamon. Spread all on platter and garnish with unpeeled red pear slices and oranges.
