Ambrosia Salad

This is obviously a kid-oriented recipe, and one that the kids will heap onto their plate at Thanksgiving (in lieu of the more traditional turkey and stuffing.) It's surprisingly healthy.

You will need:
A big bowl
Fresh fruit (use any or all of the following)
-seedless grapes
Canned fruit (use any or all of the following)
-mandarin oranges
Shredded coconut (optional)
Cool Whip (or hand whipped cream if you're feeling ambitious)

Drain off the canned fruit into a pitcher; add water as needed to make a fruit juice blend. Chop any of the fruit that requires it into small pieces. Mix the fruit and the coconut in the bowl; refrigerate until needed. Add Cool Whip just before serving.
