SharonT - the "smoked" Gouda cheese really makes a difference - especially if you're using plain rather than smoked chicken. The recipe came from a now long gone deli/catering place I used to frequent in NY. It was one of their most frequently requested items.

However, I expect this dessert-like salad would have at least 400 calories per serving; don't know about the fat grams.

And it is a great addition to the Thanksgiving buffet.

Alright
Thanks
My mom will like this one.

I usually make my own version of Ambrosia when we have a turkey dinner.
I drain a can of mandarin pieces, a can of pineapple tidbits, drain really well....add shredded sweetened coconut and sour cream. Mix well together. Really cooling and deelish along side the turkey and other trimmings.

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.
