How long can you keep Ambrosia?

Typically this type of "salad" needs to be eaten pretty quickly. Ideally, you want to only keep this refrigerated for about 3 days. After 3 days, I would recommend discarding it.
  • Tip - One way to help extend this salad is to make sure your fruits are drained and dried as best as possible before mixing together. You do not want to bring any excess liquid to this party!
