Today I'm going to share with you a rather unconventional Thanksgiving recipe, but one that's been on my holiday table almost every year of my life. I'm not sure if this is a midwestern thing, or just something my Mom did, but she was really big on cold fruity salads for holidays. We always had a Waldorf Salad and her beloved "Sour Cream Salad," otherwise known as Ambrosia. It provides a nice sweet, but not too sweet, element to the otherwise heavy protein and carb-laden menu items. When Lily was small she would fill half her plate with this, leaving little room for anything else! This is why, in Mom's absence, it will be she who prepares this for us.
